Description

A one time sport climbing mecca, this area of American Fork has historical value as the beginning of limestone sport climbing in America. Thank you Boone Speed, Tim Wagner, Jeff Pedersen, Mike Call, Bill Boyle, Mike Beck...etc.

This is still the place to get honed in the SLC area. The routes are bouldery and steep and require good technical skills as well as crazy finger strength.

Classics include Hell, Malvado, El Diablo and Body Count.
Located in a National Forest Fee Area Details

Getting There

Drive up American Fork Canyon until you pass the Timpanogos Cave, drive another .65 miles passing the Hideaway parking on the left and start to look for a large pullout on the right. Park here and walk back down canyon and cross the road. At or around 150 feet, you will see a trail leading uphill passing a chossy dark wall. This trail will head right to the El Diablo Wall. From El Diablo, follow a trail south which wraps clockwise around the scree cone to reach the cave. This should be a good guide to get your started. See Individual crags here for other directions.
