Eagle Canyon Arch, south of I-70.

Description 

Technically, this area is called Eagle Canyon I believe. However, the area of Swaseyland is meant to encompass the region at Swasey's Cabin and in the canyons west (behind) the cabin. This region is south of I-70 (Eagle Canyon runs under I-70), and thus I felt this area falls into the San Rafael South Region. It does connect with the Eagle Canyon description that Paul Ross has in the San Rafael North Region. One section of the canyon is north of I-70, the other south.

Getting There 

The easiest way to get to Swaseyland is by driving to Swasey's Cabin and then following the 4WD road that continues past it to the west.

Swasey's Cabin is a well known landmark in the San Rafael Swell and can be found on most maps. It is a worthwhile stop, and the walk to the Icebox area is also fun. There is also a wonderful toilet located here!

Eagle Rock C2  UT : San Rafael Swell : ... : Swaseyland
This tower is too beautiful to be named such a boring name, however, near the base of the route is inscribed the words, "This is Eagle Rock." How can I argue with that?On the south side of the formation, follow the bolt line. This route consists of about 20 bolts that connect 2-3 short sections of C1 and C2 climbing. The route follows cracks until about halfway, then C0 bolts up under the roof, around to the right, and up the final headwall.This is the kind of tower that makes even non-climbe...[more]   Browse More Classics in UT
