Description

Most of the info posted here is from the book "A Bouldering Guide to Utah" by Baldwin, Beck, Russo. This is mostly a bouldering area with a few mixed gear, trad and sport routes. This place is epically eerie and seated at the end of a dry desert lake out in the middle of the desert in southern Utah. The boulders are monstrous red quartzite behemoths and since it all sits next to a dead lake it magnifies the feeling of how beautifully desolate and remote this area is. Besides the dead lake the rocks themselves give you an eerie feeling. Some of them are even hollow, completely solid, but they still ring like a bass drum when you bang on them. This is a five star bouldering area if you like to go high.

Getting There

The easiest way to get there is from Hwy 50. The exit off of the highway is on the right heading east, or on the left heading west, around mile marker 38 or 39, just passed the Ibex Well sign if your heading east. You will know it is the right road because there are two posts at the entrance where you can tell there used to be a sign. follow that dirt road for about 2.1 miles where you will come to a couple stacks of rocks marking the next turn. turn right at the rock piles heading back west. cross the dry lake bed and you pull straight up to the crag.
