Description

Eagle Canyon and the Head of Sinbad (north) are located in the San Rafael Swell north of I-70. There are several climbs in these two areas, mainly towers, that are already described in Bjornstad's Desert Rock II Wall Street to the San Rafael Swell book. There is much to explore in these areas, and not only new rock climbs. These beautiful and spectacular areas are ideal for hiking.

Getting There

A wire gate into the Head of Sinbad area is located on the North side of I-70 35.8 miles heading west from the town of Green River. The Eagle Canyon area is further down I-70 through a iron gate that is 40 miles from Green River. Access to The Head of Sinbad can also be made on sandy roads from Ranch Exit 131 that leads to Buckhorn Wash and the San Rafael campsite by driving under I-70, and then heading south on dirt roads and after about 7.5 miles back under I-70. However, it is easier if the wire gate is located 7.3 miles past the Ranch Exit 131. The wire gate is just after mile marker 125. The iron gate that leads to the Eagle Canyon area is located 12.5 miles from Ranch Exit 131 just after mile marker 121 and leads to a highway maintenance shed, opposite is a short dirt road to a good campsite below the rock wall.

Maps are available for the San Rafael Swell area, and a large map is located at the Exit 131 on I-70.
