Wasatch Range

The Wasatch Range stretches from northern Utah, near the Idaho border, to central Utah beyond Mt. Nebo.

The range contains several major canyons, and a lot of minor canyons. Logan Canyon and American Fork Canyon (among others) are limestone; Big Cottonwood Canyon is quartzite, and Little Cottonwood Canyon is granite-like quartz monzonite. Superb climbing in all four of these.

In addition Bell's Canyon, near Salt Lake City, and Rock Canyon, near Provo, deserve mention.
