Description

South and west facing conglomerate rock walls with several short sport routes 35' to 45' tall. This crag is in a chill location surrounded by pinon pines and junipers where you'll likely not see anyone else. This is a good place to set up top ropes if you're new to cobblestone climbing on conglomerate rock or are not leading sport routes yet. Climb here during the spring and early summer when Shinobe and Roller Rink walls are closed for raptor nesting season. As with all conglomerate routes, belayers be mindful of cobbles cleaning off under the leader. It's prudent to wear a helmet, especially for the belayer.

Getting There

Head up the wash to the west of the main wall "Shinobe". Headed up to the wash 10-15 minutes. The wash will split and keep right at that point. Shortly afterwords you will see a short wall on the left above the wash with bolts at the top.

A view of the 3 areas. Follow the obvious wash to get to the Parowan Gap Wall

In Todd Goss' guide book there was a 5.7 trad route (Sheeka) listed. The climb didn't seem worth climbing with only the top part of the crack looking like it would take gear. If your headed out here I would skip the 5.7 and stick to the sport routes. Nov 11, 2013
I don't think these short chossy routes are worth the hike. Apr 20, 2015

I second that. In fact, I don't think this area is worth much unless you have little time and are nearby. If not, drive somewhere else. Apr 21, 2015

Two new moderate sport routes were equipped May 2018 at The Parowan Gap Crag left of and behind the rock island that makes the tunnel left of the original four sport routes. The left line is Drill Dust in the Wind (5.8 or so and immediately right of where I think Sheeka is). The right line is Hello Hummingbird (low/mid-5.10; I had the most curious little hummingbird over my shoulder and even hovering between me and the rock while adding bolt #3). If you climb any of these, please be mindful of cobbles that can still clean off. Belayer, especially, be prudent by wearing a helmet. Also, please record your suggested rating to build a consensus grade. May 21, 2018
