Description

Box Canyon features routes from 20-500 feet on solid, grippy limestone. Some say it's sharp. I say it's fantastic. It seems like most of the climbing is of a slabby nature, although there are some steeper lines in the james bond area. The multipitch routes are great.

Enjoy, and tread lightly so we can keep these routes and hopefully get the ban lifted in the future.
PLEASE!! NO NEW BOLTS. New fixed hardware could jeopardize climbing access for the entire area. Details

Getting There

Take 33 west until it tees; take a left. 4 miles later take a right towards Howe. in the valley you will see a white domed building. take the farm roads toward it. go past it and straight up into the canyon.

DIRECTIONS: From highway 33 about 2 1/4 miles east of Howe, turn North on 1300W. After about 3 miles, make a right at the first stop sign (2800N). Take this about a mile (it should turn into a dirt road) until you make a left on 1200W. Follow this road straight through to box canyon. When you see a sign for Black Canyon, hang a right.

Anyone who's climbed at Box Canyon will attest this is a special place. While we'd all like to see the bolting ban lifted, we're also grateful for the routes that currently exist. Let's ensure we keep what we've currently got by taking care of this canyon. Minimize impact by parking in established spots, building fires in existing rings, and picking up trash. A lot of people recreate here, and most of the litter is from people shooting cans. We should pick up their garbage as well as our own. Always keep a garbage bag in your crag pack and carry out more than you brought in.
Thanks for helping! May 8, 2013
A great area to go climbing in! So much potential. I can only imagine what could be developed if the ban on bolting were lifted. Great rock. Bolt spacing varies greatly from route to route, and it's not just by difficulty. Mar 18, 2013
