Description

The Glen Canyon NRA is an immense area that spans from northern Arizona all the way up to the Canyonlands National Park, and from near Escalante all the way to the Goosenecks near Mexican Hat. Before the dam was completed in 1963, there were hundreds of miles of canyons that no doubt contained some incredible climbs and other magical adventures. The canyons are long since flooded, but there is still a tremendous opportunity for remote adventures here. A little exploration goes a long way out here in the desolation of the high desert. Notable areas are the Escalante region and the Waterpocket Fold, the canyons of the San Juan River, and north one has the Dirty Devil, Rock Canyon, Andy Miller Flats, and the magnificent gorge of Cataract Canyon.

Getting There

The established climbs are in the Escalante area (Willow Canyon), and atop Andy Miller Flats. There are unclimbed towers and spires in this vast area, but you must put your adventure hat on to find them.
