West facing, short, easy, mostly bolted routes on quality rock. Quick approach, popular, good for beginning leaders.

Getting There

As you approach Rock Canyon from the parking area, this will be the first rock on the right. As you are hiking you will see a water tank on your left. Red Slab is the slab on the south side of the road at the entrance to the canyon proper. Hike up and to the right for a 5 minute approach from the "old" road. Approximately 10-15 minute approach from the parking lot.

The green line in the photo is the standard path (and yes, somebody chopped the bolts and the attached fixed line along that path a few years ago).

It's possible to bushwhack up the north (left side) but it's probably equally difficult and less pleasant. May 1, 2014
What is the best way to the top of this wall? The green line indicated for toproping was pretty sketchy if I was going up at the right place, and if there were fixed ropes at one time, they're gone now. Apr 30, 2014

I was over at the 5.5 Playground route and I noticed another route a few feet to the right of this route. I climbed it and it seemed like a 5.6-7 but I cant find any info. It was a fun clean climb and the last move was pretty run out making it even better! Does anyone know what this route is called? Aug 4, 2012

there are a few anchors up top that have come loose. This wall needs some work, i will be going up early tomorrow with my baby sister to take care of the issues on the wall. it would be great if climbers could stay off red slab for the duration of the morning to allow us to do the work that is required for the safety of all the other climbers that use this wall. its up to the ones that know how to look after everyone else. thanks climbers, and safe climbing Aug 26, 2011

Red slab is okay. It's a good place to bring a big group because it's easy to set a lot of topropes. I am not a huge fan in general because it's usually more crowded and the sun beats down on you fierce most of the climbing season. It's nice because it's quick to get there and easy to toprope if you're bringing beginners. Sep 7, 2008
This is the Dogwood of Utah County. There are many additonal sport routes that have been added and don't appear in any of the guide books. Jun 1, 2005
