DescriptionFound by the Bob Draney and company in the early 90's, this area has evolved into a great sport climbing area. There is a trad route or two out there as well. The rock faces south, so it boils in warm weather, while you can crank on colder days quite happily. One of Cedar City's first crags.
The rock is welded tuff and it is kind of sharp, but nothing too bad. The routes are on average about 60 feet long, so you can bring minimal draws and a short rope if you're so inclined.
Getting ThereTake the 2nd Cedar City exit (exit #59) and go west on 200 N. This road brings you out past the factories and the other industrial-type stuff. Keep to the highway proper.
As you are headed out of town towards the west hills, rock outcroppings appear on your right hand side, the first is Sprocket Rocks, keep driving about 3 minutes and look for the closer (to the road) formations of rock, this is Pocket Rocks. A well-traveled trail leads one up to the cliffs.
