DescriptionOut in the middle of nowhere! White Rocks is more of a shooting range than a climbing area, but still offers a good amount of climbing on some pretty unique rock.
Camping is free and there are campsites scattered everywhere throughout the junipers. No porta-potties, fire pits, or picnic tables.
As for the rock, it can be of questionable quality.
Most of the rock on the slabs is solid, and will clean up with traffic. The unique hueco features on the grey rock are all pretty dirty though.
Its fairly close to SLC, and that might be its biggest redeeming factor. The few multi pitch climbs there are excellent and offer amazing views of the valley. Good place to spend a day and not see many people(if any at all)
Getting ThereFrom I-80, take the Dugway/Rowley exit (The Blob) and follow the road south for about 30-35 minutes.
You'll be able to see the formation from the road, and you'll want to turn at the dirt road marked with a small "White Rocks" sign.
The dirt road leading to the rocks is decent and easily passable by 2wd cars.
You can drive all around the formation, though there are many roads that branch out in different directions that its easy to miss the proper turns. I prefer to drive around the formation counter-clockwise.
You can park right at the base of most of the climbs. Approaches are probably 5-10 minutes at the most.
