Description [Suggest Change]

The Marsupials are a remote collection of rock outcrops and towers on the east side of the park. The long approach keeps many away but those that make the trek will enjoy classic climbs and perhaps feel what Smith was like decades ago. Recently the marsupials have seen a great deal of new route development.

Like most places at Smith the rock varies. Many of the new routes still have loose nubbins but should improve with time.

Getting There [Suggest Change]

Plan on about an hour to reach most of the Marsupials formations.

From the parking area head down the main trail, cross the bridge and turn right. Follow the trail until you near a series of basalt collumns. Head left up a series of switchbacks to an old road. From the road you can access any of the Marsupial formations.
