Description

Calcite rich sandstone cliffs that have steep slab to vertical and overhanging routes. The rock looks like Spearfish Canyon in South Dakota, but its nowhere near as good. However, there is good rock to be found here, and large amount of choss too.

The best seasons are spring and fall but it is very possible to rock climb here in the middle of summer too.

A good but hard to find reference is Troy D. Anderson's semi-comprehensive guide, Metal In Your Head.

Getting There

From Cedar City find HWY 14, this goes through Cedar Canyon. From HWY 89 take HWY 14 to Cedar City.
