Description

This area has a few routes scattered around. It stays pretty shady in the afternoon. The hike up is nasty and almost makes it not worth climbing there.

It is rumored that Yvon Chouinard climbed some of these routes, hence the name.

Getting There

Park at the Hole In the Rock pullout and walk West along the road. It is the first big gully before the Utah Wall. Head South when you get to a reflector pole that is in front of a pile of big rocks that have rolled down the gully. Be VERY careful walking up, the rocks are bigger and more loose than in the Utah Gully. If you knock one loose it is almost sure to hit the road.

Chouinard did in fact come to Ogden (twice I think) in the late 1960s to instruct the Steinfel members on how to aid climb. During his trip, he climbed a number of the routes in the canyon, mostly solo. There is some video footage of at least one of the trips. Dec 7, 2014

Also, the hike up is dirty and loose. Hopefully, in the future there would be work done on it. If you do venture up, you may as well tick off some of the other routes. The diagnol 5.7 crack above Chouinard's crack is a little comical, but certainly worth doing.

Also I think the base of Dirty Corner and Chouinard's Crack should have a bolted anchor to wrap from. It scares me to think people are rapping off those crappy pins. Dec 7, 2014
