The Minimum Crag Rock Climbing
popular place - the minimum crag
Located in the Right Hand Fork of Maple Canyon, the Minimum Crag is a shady, gently overhanging sport crag with approximately 20 routes from 5.9 through 5.13. The majority of routes are well-bolted and in the hard 11 through mid 12 range. The Crag is quite popular due to the high quality routes and soft grades.
The trailhead is located at a small pull-out big enough for two cars on the west side of the road (the right hand side as you head uphill). Hike up the trail for approximately 5-8 minutes. The second trail on the left takes you to the Minimum Crag. The Crag is visible from the trail. It faces NNE and gets early morning sun, but is in the shade by around 11 am.

Just right of Afterglow and left of The Put Down is this fine line, which provides an excellent warmup for the harder routes on the wall. Although still a little sandy, the route has cleaned up and gotten somewhat easier since it was bolted. Originally rated 12b, now the grade feels closer to 11d. ...[more] Browse More Classics in UT
