I, like so many, find LCC to be a cruel mistress...
Its a love-hate type relationship. With that said, here I offer a haiku:

So many great boulders
And such fickle conditions
Don't count on sending

5 good days a year...that's all we seem to get...its over till spring Nov 18, 2014

Looking pretty good... You might want to borrow a black bible if you can, half of the boulder and problems at WPS are already named. Jul 26, 2013

Yo, left my Petzl chalkbag in the Gate bouldering area. Its tan-ish and has a little guy climbing on it (the little dudes eye is bulging) and its a zip up with a black metolius biner on it. Left it up there Friday Oct 5, 2012, if you gots it and you're generous, hit me up Oct 6, 2012

Jason,
check out:

Utah Bouldering
That book covers climbing in Little Cottonwood, Ogden, Joe's Valley, Ibex and Big Bend.

Season here tends to be March - June and picks up again around September - whenever there's too much snow.
Climbing in the summer is limited since it gets so hot, so you have to drive up to White Pine or find some really good shade. Jun 1, 2012

You can occasionally climb in LCC in winter, but certainly don't count on it. With that said, Momentum for routes and the SLC Front for bouldering are both awesome gyms! Nov 27, 2010
