Great crag will solid basalt cliffs. The area offers a full range of routes so it is a great place to take a posse with varied abilities. Sport climbing from 5.7 to 5.12c. Trad climbing from 5.5 to 5.9+.
Note for climbers seeking 5.9 and under. The routes 5.9 and under at running scared offer maybe the highest level of enjoyment when compared against route of the same grade throughout the cedar city area.
From Cedar City, take Highway 14 East to Highway 148 (this is also the turn for Cedar Breaks National Monument). Drive through Cedar Breaks (no fee required if you're just driving through) and make a right (east) on Highway 143. Take Hwy. 143 for 5.5 miles. park in the pull off on the right side of the road just before the stream passes under the road. cross the road and follow the fence line into the trees. Once you arrive at an old logging road follow turn right and head down the road for about 400 yards. Look for a cairns and tree-limb lined path on your left. follow the well marked path up to the crag.

When I first climbed here several years ago I found this climb to be harder than other 5.7's i've done but I think it was because of rapidly coming up to higher altitude and not being used to it. Now I would agree with the 5.7 rating. Probably the better of the climbs on this wall....[more] Browse More Classics in UT
