DescriptionThe Bluff Street Cracks are the south-facing sandstone cliffs that overlook Saint George on the north side of town.
There are a number of cracks and corners here including hand cracks and wide stuff. Todd Goss's Rock Climbs of Southwest Utah & The Arizona Strip, Second Edition lists six named climbs but notes pretty much everything here has been climbed at one time or another.
There are at least three bolted anchors (some with chains, some with webbing) that aren't noted in the guidebook.
Sometimes closed in spring for raptor nesting Details
Getting ThereThe base of the cliffs are a short hike/scramble from the streets of Saint George. It is probably best to park at the north end of 400 W. To get to the north end of 400 W it is easiest to take Diagonal Street. Either turn southeast on Diagonal from Bluff Street north of St George Blvd or turn north on Main Street from St George Blvd and then turn left on Diagonal. Then turn north on 400W and continue a block or two.
Alternatively, see here:
Hike/scramble up to the base of the cliffs (10-20 minutes).
