Description Suggest change

While not nearly as popular as the Wasatch range to the East, this area has been seeing a lot of development lately. Kennecott owns much of the land in these mountains especially to the North. This range offers plenty of unexplored crags yet to be developed.

Much of the information contained in the following areas come with permission from James Garrett's guide "Utah's West Desert."
This is an amazing guide to the areas west of Salt Lake, buy the book!

Getting There Suggest change

The Oquirrh Mountain Range runs North-South to the West of the Salt Lake Valley.
