Description

Sandstone crack, chimney, and varnish face climbing. Sport and trad with six or seven routes from 5.4 to 5.11a. Deviant Chimney is nice on a hot afternoon because it is well-shaded. All the routes are within a 50-75 yard wide section of the wall.


Hackberry Wash Wall is closed March 15 to June 1. Details

Getting There

Hackberry Wash Wall is south of the large Island in the Sky formation. If you get the Snow Canyon State Park Climbers Information pamphlet from the park entrance station you can find it on the map, although it isn't obvious from the map on which part of the wall the routes are.

Park at the pullout for Jenny's Canyon trail and hike east on the trail to the dry wash. Turn south in the wash and look for a trail on your left. Take this trail east and south until you reach another dry wash. Follow this wash south until you see a large boulder in front of a wall that has a large, vertical crack in the center, and a large hole (or cave) in the wall above the ledge at the top of the ground wall. (Or just look for what you see in the picture in the Goss guidebook). Find the trail leading from the wash to the base of the wall.

I edited the description to change the start of closed period from March 31 to March 15. The Climbers Information pamphlet from Snow Canyon State Park states "closed March 31 - June 1", but the Access Fund web site says March 15, and Claire's experience indicates earlier than March 31 as well.

Future reference for those. The wall was closed BEFORE March 31 (we were there march 20). See ahead before you go Apr 21, 2006
