Description

Chuckawalla Wall is a sunny crag, facing S/SW into the sun for most of the day int he winter. The climbing is relatively nice, but is all sport and lacks much variety. While this crag offers a few nice days of climbing, it is not a destination.

The red sandstone here is an attractive formation, being mostly good, and while gentle on the hands, also a little slick in spots from the polishing of many hands. The climbing is on pockets, slopers, and crimps most of the time.

Here's an oblique, aerial view of the crag.

All of the routes are bolted and none require more than 10 clips. Each has a relatively good top anchor to rap or lower from. With the popularity of this wall, please rap to avoid destroying the shuts and chains over time. If TR'ing, please use your own biners or draws to avoid wearing the anchors as well.

The area is reached via a 2 minute hike from a nice parking area with nice clean potties and trashcans. The area is a free-use area and needs to be respected if we are to remain welcome here. Please pick up trash and stay on trails.

Getting There

From Saint George, go N. on Bluff Street ~ 1 mile past Sunset BLVD, where a pull-out and parking area will be obvious on the left side of the road. Just down the hill to the West you can see Chuckawalla Wall and a few miles in is Turtle Wall. Walk the obvious path to the crag (2 min)

The trail is well marked and the main rd even has a sign for the area that you can't miss. The wall is 30 seconds from the parking lot and 8 minutes from town. We really enjoed this wall for a day of climbing. No need to spend more than 2 days at this wall. Also, the turle wall is a 10 minute walk down the main trail. Jan 22, 2008

I just found a harness at Chuckawalla this morning, 9/8/15. Contact me with a description if you left one. I apologize ahead of time that I am going out of town tomorrow for a week. I figured if I didn't take the harness it might get taken by someone who wouldn't bother to post on Mountain Project. Sep 8, 2015

Lost Grivel ascenders yesterday. Would like to get them back if anyone have found them, and I will be generous on reward.

Thanks for John Ehrig I got them back safely. Feb 18, 2018
Found a Stick Clip on the Chuckawala trail 2/20/18 , IM me and I'll get it back to you! Feb 20, 2018
I was recently clipping some of the new glue-ins on Sand Puppy, Sands of Anarchy, and Sands of Blood. I was dismayed by the thin stock, which reminds me of paper clips. Everywhere I have previously seen glue-ins, those have been made of thicker stock and were placed in harder rock, which is ironic. In Europe, the glue-ins were placed in dense limestone. Btw the second paper clip on SoB is in hollow rock and appears to flex. I would be happier with long half-inch sleeve bolts in this soft rock. Thick glue-ins would be better yet. Mar 17, 2018
They are all wave bolts and are perfectly bomber. Wave bolts are now highly utilized throughout the US. The rock will fail before the metal will. The thickness is not a significant factor once it reaches the appropriate sheer strength. The length is more impactful in soft rock. Mar 18, 2018
Found climbing shoes (size 8), chalk bag, and one carabiner with ATC on it, July 9th, 2018. If it's yours, text me at 435 319-0347 and describe them so you can come and pick them up. happy climbing. Jul 9, 2018 · Lost & Found
