The Valley of Zion Rock Climbing
This area offers some fantastic climbs on limestone of good quality, though some of the newer routes need some cleaning still. Although there is some garbage and shells from shooters in the parking area, this isn't as popular a place to target practice as Lone Rock. The higher areas aren't in the line of fire if that is an issue.
There are other names for the cliffs in this area (and some of the routes) but I am going off of what is in James Garrett's book Utah's West Desert here as it's the only tangible information I can find (Good book, by the way, check it out).
Take I80 West from SLC or East from Wendover to exit 77 Dugway/Rowley. Head South under the freeway and take the first dirt road to your left (East). Follow this until you can turn Left on a 'road' that goes North a bit then around to the East. Park in the large pullout/shooting area on the right.

Today I and another HawkWatch International researcher observed an active Red-Tailed Hawk nest in this area, with a bird sitting on eggs. Climbing routes at any of the crags listed in this area may disturb them and disrupt their attempt to breed this year. If you observe a raptor circling overhead & shrieking, or flying away from its nest, you are likely disturbing it. Please consider climbing elsewhere even though there is no official closure. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions about this, either by PM on this site or via email@example.com
