Description

This is a great wall with a lot of multi-pitch moderates. The rock is sandstone with varnish edges. The wall gets winter sun in the afternoon and shade in the morning. You can descend most routes with a single 60M. There are a few good trad/mixed routes, so don't leave your gear at home. The majority of the routes are 5.10 and are up to 250ft long.

The sandstone here is easily damaged when wet. Please allow at least 24-48 hours before climbing after any precipitation. If the ground is at all damp, please do not climb on any local sandstone. Consider nearby options on basalt, limestone, granite, or plastic instead.

Getting There

Drive north out of St George on Rt 18. (Bluff St) Turn left on a gravel road at mile post 18. Drive 2 miles and turn left onto a dirt road below the cliff. After 2 miles, you'll have several left turn choices. Skip the first two and locate the main road, approximately 2/3 from the lookers left side of the wall. The parking is abutted by a large iron pipe about 3 ft in diameter.  The hiking trail begins on the cliff side of the pipe. Take care to note the approach trail. Multiple trails make locating the main trail back to the lot difficult leading to damage to fragile soils and environment.
