Description

The town of Ophir was developed as a mining town, and now consists of a small community with a few mining exhibits for visitors.
Most of the rock here is limestone. Be careful of rock-fall on newer routes - this area is seeing a lot of development lately so a helmet is always a good idea!
All climbing is on private land Details

Getting There

Take Highway 36 South from Tooele, turn left onto Highway 73 toward Lehi and Ophir - the turn off 73 to Ophir Canyon is clearly marked. The drive is roughly 15 minutes from Tooele.

You can also go West on 73 from Lehi (I-15 South from Salt Lake City) or from Redwood Road (Highway 68 South from Western Salt Lake Valley). Drive past Eagle Mountain and Cedar Fort, the right turn to Ophir will be clearly marked.
