Description

Kelly's Rock borders a dry wash and consists of solid, rough limestone. It faces roughly north.

There are over 20 bolted, named routes here from 5.8 to 5.13 with about equal numbers in the 9's, 10's, 11's, and 12's.
In critical habitat area for the Desert Tortoise Details

Getting There

From the Woodbury Road turnoff drive 3.7 miles (3.2 according to Goss). Shortly after crossing the fourth cattle guard the parking for Black and Tan and Kelly's Rock is on the right. Walk back to the wash and turn right up the wash (or find a cairn-marked trail that cuts the corner to the wash). From the parking area to the base of the wall is approximately .2 miles (as measured using Google Earth).

Can anyone tell me if you can walk around and set up top ropes. My son is still to young to belay and the weather is getting nice. Thank you. Sep 24, 2017

This wall is named after Kelly Oldroyd, a great guy and strong as hell climber from Salt Lake. Thanks for the great routes Kelly! Jun 13, 2017

I added a bunch of beta pictures with approximate bolt locations on most of the climbs for the left side. I was a little confused on some of the routes from the Goss book. If anyone has any extra information, especially concerning the unknown routes (FA, etc.), then let me know. I'll update the route descriptions.

I've enjoyed my experiences at Kelly's Rock immensely. The wall has so many different routes: easy jugs up runnels, thin slabs, overhanging boulder problems. What's not to love about this place? May 23, 2011
