Description

The Doghouse is a fun, steep area consisting of primarily sport routes with a chimney, slab, and corner crack thrown in for prosperity.

Mostly bolted, this crag has around nine varied routes offering all styles of climbing. Whether you seek steep edges and pockets, delicate slab climbing, wide cracks, or chimneys, The Doghouse offers a quick fix for a diverse group of more experienced climbers.

The perfect lazy man's crag, this area gets morning shade and warms up with afternoon sun.

-Allow proper drying after rain as the sandstone here is quite vulnerable.

Getting There

The Doghouse is found in an alcove directly across from the Snow Canyon's sand dunes. Its most easily reached by parking at the West Canyon Day Lot. Approach via the faint climbers trail on the east side of the road and make a short scramble up a slab to gain the crag. Approach time is approximately five minutes.
