The "B" Crag

Utah > Wasatch Range > Northern Wasatch > Davis County > Bountiful

Great for Scouts and Newbies

A great place for scouts and first-timers to experience rappelling/top-roping. Located along Stone Creek in a canyon just off to the right of the Bountiful "B". The stone is somewhat chossy and sharp in some areas, but safe enough for 14+ year-olds to get up to the anchor location without too much climbing difficulty (there is a worn trail up and to the left of the immediate face). Height is roughly 25m to the ground (great for double-roping with a 60m rope).

Getting There

Follow the road up to the Bountiful "B" where you'll usually park where other ATV/motorcycle riders are (staging area). There is a small canyon off to the right with a dirt road which starts behind a (usually closed) triangle iron gate. The road heads downward for about 600 ft. then starts to head up the canyon (past the bend) along the Bonneville Shoreline Trail for another 1/4 mi. When you get to some waist-high concrete structures, you'll keep following past them through the brush by the small stream where you'll see the rock face to your right.

[Hide Comment] There is only 1 lead route (Unknown 5.6), but there are a couple TR anchors. I don't know why these aren't listed on MP. Jul 30, 2016

[Hide Comment] I just was here for the first time today. I brought a friend thinking it would be a good place to show them how to top-rope belay. The description is kind of misleading. I thought it was saying the TRAIL up to the anchors was easy for 14 year olds. I wasn't planning to lead so I didn't have draws or my trad rack with me. We successfully scrambled up the "trail" to set up a top-rope, but it was the sketchiest thing I've done in a long time. It wasn't difficult, but it was a very narrow, sloped, almost muddy trail with minimal hand-holds and 50+ foot drop-offs. If you slipped, it could be deadly. The only safe way to set up top-ropes is to lead a route. Once you get to the top, the area seemed reasonably flat so you could safely walk/scramble from one anchor to another. Oct 30, 2022
[Hide Comment] Was there this last weekend and agree with what Adam posted. The one lead route I could find has some pretty serious runout between bolts 3 and 4, so I took the long walk to the top. If you're comfortable climbing up through the scrub oak, it's not too bad to get to the anchor on a thigh-high rock. Jan 29, 2024
