Getting weather forecast...
Crawdad Canyon is a great place to climb if you want to climb as many routes as you can in a day. The canyon runs East/West so there's always a route or two in the shade during the summer. There is an entry fee to enter the park. This is a resort area with a pool and a snack bar (with great hamburgers and drinks). It's a family place and the pool is generally packed with kids, but there are enough routes far enough away from noise to make this a non-issue (the pool can be much welcome after a long day of climbing). The only climbing allowed is sport (they make you sign a waiver that says you won't do any other type). The park is generally closed from Labor Day to the beginning of May. Local climb shops have access information during the winter. During the summer it's open every day. There a couple hundred routes here, enough to keep you busy for a while.2017 Update from Julien Roy: The prices have recently changed (in May 2017). Apparently, the owner is now forced to get insurances for the climbing area and has therefore been forced to change the pricing. New prices : - Camping, 30$ per site - Climbing + Access to the pool, 17$ per personPricing and Liability Waiver can be found on Crawdad Canyons Rock Climbing page
To get there from St. George, take Bluff Street to Hwy. 18 (Bluff turns into 18 after Sunset Blvd./Skyline Dr. intersection). Hwy. 18 also gives access to Chuckawalla Wall, Black Rocks, and Prophesy Wall. About 20 miles outside St. George, before you cross a bridge at the bottom of a hill, a right hand turn leads to the park. It is well marked.
