Description

This area as a whole lies directly above the town of Willard. This also is the heavily used Willard Bay area. Its about 5-7 minutes north of Odgen. There are supposidly three ice routes, a spire, and a newer face. Turn up Willard canyon road to access most of the climbing. This is the dirt road next to Willard cemetery. When you arrive at the fork in the road, take the right. Drive to a parking lot on the left. This lot is before an entrance to a gravel pit. Walk/hike northeast from this parking lot. Cross the stream then gain the dirt road higher on the north side of the canyon. Follow this road then find your way to the bottom. The ice is easily visible from the main road in Willard as are most of the crags. If you can't see anything, you probably shouldn't hike axes and screws, ropes or cams up there.

Approach takes around an hour or less depending on your condition. Descend by hiking straight north on top of the cliffband. Look for a trail that was forged in the cliffband and switchbacks to your backpacks and dogs. The routes are worth the effort.
