Description

Located on the (utah - wyoming) border this is a fun area with in Flaming Gorge. This is sandstone so be careful with your holds. Make sure your trad protection is solid. I didn't see any chains or bolts for miles while looking for a great route. Their is not much up top to set and anchor so come prepared with slings and gear. You can walk off any route in this area. Also their is alot of small cactus on your approach so watch out. Never seen any climber in this area. Looked in many books. This is prime for First assents.

Getting There

The area is full of climbing potential. Most routes are on the north side of the road. Your approach is usually short. 5-10 minutes to the base of your route. From 1-80 take 530 south for an hour and a half until you are just north of Melina Utah. The valley will be on the east side of the road. Follow the signs to the Lucerne Marina. Stay on the main road for most routes.

Has there been anymore development in this area? I'm heading out memorial day weekend and would love to do some climbing while I'm around the gorge. Too cold to DWS in May. Apr 30, 2012
