Western Solomon's Pillars Rock Climbing
A nice small single pitch crag with routes ranging from 4+ on the French scale to above 8! It's relatively secluded, as most tourists don't even know that people climb here. The sandstone is rough, but the desert scenery is awesome. There is a mix of sport and trad in the area, with most routes having a bolted anchor at the top. Not all do however. There is a fair bit of shade in the morning, but it gets hot. Really hot.
From the parking lot walk towards the pillars and turn left. There should be blue and white trail markers. Follow them.
Climbing Season For the Asia area.

The route starts up the obvious diagonal crack up the left side of the face. Your belayer can stand on the first ledge up from the trail. The crux is the 10ft section or so which is significantly more vertical than the rest of the pitch, and there is a ledge if you want to catch your breath before finishing up and take in the great view. Try to put in a cam right before you get on the ledge so when you finish up on the right, the move is protected (even though it's easy)....[more] Browse More Classics in International
