Description

Small area of granite just outside of Cedar City. You can see the main (largest) formations from town. Don't let the vague location descriptions deter you from heading out. It's such a small area if you check out the route pictures you'll be able to find the climbs. There is also plenty of quality bouldering to be had with a little cleaning involved.
*Warning* This is NOT a destination area by any means. It's simply Cedar's backyard, good for a quick fix.

Getting There

Head west on Hwy. U-56 from Cedar City to Lund Hwy; head north for about five miles to Mid-Valley Rd., then west for about two miles. Take a left on dirt road directly after the white fence. After about 200 yards turn right onto the most developed dirt road heading towards the largest formation. There are alot of dirt roads out there that all can essentially lead to the formations. Just pick one when you get close enough.

Glad to see people climbing out here. Definitely an overlooked area. There are quite a few good boulder problems on and surrounding the mound. Check out the split boulder just to the west of the mound in the trees. There are at least 3 classic problems, with more potential test pieces. I think it is in the center here, not sure though: mappingsupport.com/p/gmap4.… Jun 2, 2010

Heads up, the top anchors have been stolen from Wind and Weiners, be prepared to top out or build an anchor if you decide to climb it. Feb 14, 2015

Check every climb because several anchors have been vandalized or removed. Hangers are missing and some bolts have been chiseled out. Climbed out there today and the Wind and Weiners climb that shares anchors with the 5.10 are still gone. The 3 cracks (Modelo, Canned, and Jawbreaker) sharing an anchor also are missing anchors. Be prepared to build anchors and walk off. May 1, 2016
Working on a map of the boulders in the Three Peaks area. Let me know if you see anything that should be added. drive.google.com/open?id=1l… Jun 3, 2018
