Description

A west/east trending kind of tight canyon. Typical sandstone routes, just short. It can be cool in the winter, but my guess is hot in the summer. Most routes are on the north face.

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

Take Sunset Blvd west of the airport mesa to Dixie Drive Road and turn left (south). Continue until you reach Canyon View Rd (N37.0955 W113.6179), and turn right (west). Continue until the pavement ends (N37.0919 W113.6277). Continue as far as your car will allow aiming for the narrow canyon (N37.0903 W113.6303) almost directly west of the end of the pavement (much of the land around here is Private, so drive on the obvious roads, be respectful, and don't try staying overnight). Either park at the base of the canyon and hike in or drive up above the right side of the canyon then scramble or rappel down.
