My partner and I are looking to clip bolts on our way from Moab to Zion later this month. I'm familiar with Mill Creek but am looking for the next choice spot. Leading 5.11+ish right now... Lurking Queer

Check out wall street. There's a couple of bolted routes there not far from town. But pardon my French, but why the eff would you drive to the desert to clip bolts? Seems like a waste of life to me? Especially if your on the way to Zion I'm sure you've got gear? Unless your screen name holds true?? Ryan N

Excuse me but it sounded like you said "Moab", "Zion", and "clipping bolts" in the same sentence! Bob Dobalina

If you are going to Zion, just wait till you get there and go climb some sport routes in St. George. Alex Quitiquit

Not trying to jack the thread, but I'm pretty sure that you (Mista Dobalina) can't be trusted....need proof? Just ask the Funkiest Homosapien:

There are some bolted sport routes that look really good right by the Lightbulb in the Buckhorn Wash. I have no information about them other than they climb through some really cool huecoed rock and are probably in the 5.11ish range. Andrew Gram

also a few routes up kane creek, just before ice cream parlor. can't remember much about them other than some nice huecos. i think they might be beyer routes (which i kind of find odd for some reason). they should be shady in th morning to afternoon or so. you could warm up on them, then maybe run up to ice cream and do 'possessed' real quick. slim

I fully expected the phrase "masturbating in a whorehouse" to pop up, but it never did. I put you in a box, internet climbing denizens, and you proved me wrong. Bravo. And a Del reference to boot. I think my brain is about to herniate with ecstasy while I'm pissin' on your steps. Colonel Mustard

it took pretty much everything i had to not type that phrase. if it were a question about bouldering at the gunks, i probably wouldn't have succeeded.

maybe the correct desert term would be 'flogging the pony in the parking lot of the mustang ranch'?

You are a stronger man than I am, Slim.

Unfortunately, I live near the Mustang Ranch. As a teen I rode a bus from Reno to Sacramento with my seatmate (seatmate only, folks!) a Mustang Ranch employee ("sex worker", we colloquially call them in NV, a whoremongoring slut of a state). She had a lot of enlightening things to say about whoring. Also, some funny shit about John Wayne Bobbit, who was working as a bouncer at the brothels at that time. I grew up a lot that day.

You could check out this place: mountainproject.com/v/jungle-o...

Haven't been myself but it looks like fun.

You know there's a bit of sport around St. George as well.

11 replies and nobody mentions Mill Creek? I don't care how you choose to spend your vacation and mill creek is actually really really good. It's like they airlifted a single crag from the rrg and dumped it above moab. It's like nothing else in the area, shade and trees and a rock that's totally unique on the plateau. It's worth stopping.


I havent been to Mill Creek but spent a lot of time in the Red. So mill creek is well bolted over hanging jugs? I thought not....

Didn't read that part, oops. Rather than pretend I'm having fun on a bunch of shitty navajo I'd modify the trip to be Maple to the Vrg.


Maple and the VRG are really no where near the moab to st george route.... Were you high when you wrote these comments? They are pretty useless.

yea if overhanging RRG jug hauls is what you're after then definitely go "out of your way" to get to maple. even 1 day of climbing there will be worth it. Greg G

On a related note, I've always wanted to make a calendar of people bouldering in front of world class climbs. Tom Grummon

Actually, Maple is just an hour's drive north of I-70 (fastest route from Moab to St. George has to be I-70 to I-15).

But, later this month it'll still be ice climbing season in Maple. Plenty snowy and brrrr. Not really sports climbing season.

Also, the Jungle is over 10k feet in elevation...not in condition either.

Options for sport between Moab and Zion is pretty limited in the winter.
