Description

Easy to see form the parking lot, the Civ Crag is marked by a huge northwest-facing varnished corner. Routes range from jugs on a slab to slightly overhanging, and the rock quality is excellent, comprising mostly of the beautiful brown varnish usually associated with canyon routes. Looking for a run of moderate climbs a step up from the crowds at the Panty Wall and Magic Bus? This is the crag for you.

Getting There

Head down to the right where the main trail initially splits, and then head up through a break to the right of Circus Wall. From there, head east, keeping approximately even in altitude - you'll be almost paralleling the loop road. You'll cross a wash or two, and eventually you should spot the black, NW-facing backside of the crag, sitting below the large steep slab that is the Black Hole. 10-15 minutes from the parking lot.
