The largest, most populated area of Snow Canyon, The Island in the Sky hosts eight of the most popular and accessible crags. An actual island of sandstone, this block has the highest concentration of routes which range from 5.5 to 5.12. Primarily west facing, this megaplex is a great place to catch mid to late afternoon sun. Whether you seek sport, trad, sport and trad, all-day adventures or short, quick cragging, the subsections of The Island in the Sky will have a little something for everybody.
Getting There [Edit]
The Island in the Sky is most easily found by entering Snow Canyon from its south entrance. After the service booth drive north along highway 8 to the Jenny's Canyon parking lot at mile marker nine. All crags are reached by one of four parking areas starting here and ending at the Pioneer Names access lot. See individual crags for parking directions.
