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.

Getting There

Take Sunset Blvd west of the airport mesa to Dixie Drive Road and turn left. Continue until you reach Canyon View Rd, and turn right. Continue until the pavement ends. Continue as far as your car will allow aiming for the narrow canyon almost directly west of the end of the pavement. Either park at the base of the canyon and hike in or drive up the side (rt) of the canyon and hide down or rap down.

I found a pair of yellow climbing shoes on the morning of June 15, 2017. Email me if you think they are yours.

I also lost a walkie talkie radio the same day.
Thanks Jun 25, 2017
Anyone know what the route name is for the bolted and chained chimney route between "Where Egos Dare" and "Hair Today Gone Tomorrow"? Feb 11, 2014
Does anyone know who put the route to the left of stick to your guns up, the one straight up the slab? Rating? Thanks. Jan 17, 2012

Fabulous area if you want to knock off some great short climbs. The quality of rock is very nice. I recommend it. Sand Stoner Reverse is simply awesome! Apr 5, 2011

Just a shout-out to the University of Utah. a lot of the new bolts and chains that have been put up in the last 2-3 years were put up by the Climbing department from the U. Mar 27, 2011

The bolts that were once missing seem to have found their way back. This area is a really fun area. The routes are short but fun. There are lots of opportunities for short, fun trad climbing all along the cliff band. Most of which use gear anchors or sling boulders for top anchors. It is super fun. Bring your trad gear and have a great day of cragging 30' trad lines. Mar 1, 2010

I love this area. I'm a local and fairly new to climbing regularly, but I think this will always be one of my favorite spots in St. G. My friends and I had a brand new copy of the guidebook and we found it quite useful, I've heard there have been many improvements on the section on this area from past editions. Anyways, great place to start out, many easy single-pitch climbs and a beautiful area. Apr 1, 2009

I agree that this area isn't the best that St. George has to offer. However, there are some fun routes here in the .10 - easy .12 range, with the majority being top ropes or more moderate climbing. If you're a beginner climber or just starting leading this is a good area to frequent. The routes here are typically short, easy to toprope, while a few of them have missing bolts. This is a good winter crag.

It feels to me that the St. George locals abandoned this area as they found stellar climbing in other areas. Regardless, props to T. Goss and the rest of the St. George crew for their herculean effort in establishing so many lines around St. George. Nov 6, 2007

Have to agree with the previous post. We spent 2 hours trying to figure out the climbs in the area and was highly disappointed. Bolts and anchors were missing. With all the other areas around St. George, this is one to skip. Nov 4, 2006

This place has great rock. Fun little sandstone sport climbing area. I was how ever very disappointed in all the trash at this place. There's a washing machine down in the canyon, not to mention other crap. It was really horrible looking!! A lot of anchor bolts were cut and smashed...At least one in the pair would be...Whats up with that...?

Also don't bother using the old guide book for this area... It will just waste your time to try and figure out what is what...And we still don't know must of what we climbed... Just get on it if it looks good.

Also witnessed some bullsh*T at this area. I don't remember the name of the climb (I think it was an .11b...maybe called Moral Dilemma...That would be ironic), anyway some guy removed the first bolt/hanger because it was a spinner... It looked fine and I even clipped it myself (even though you would deck if you fell onto it, but I'm sure it would of held a fall)... But instead of tightening the damn bolt, he just stole the hanger. I wish I would of said something about that, but at the time I didn't think it was my business to say anything (couple of them were locals). I think this group was a bunch of idiots and next time I'll say something...

The guy who stole the hanger had to stick clip the next bolt......PUSSY!

St. G locals...Sorry for not standing up and saying something.... Oct 11, 2006
