Description

From the second edition of Todd Goss' Rock Climbs of Southwest Utah & The Arizona Strip:

"Lambs Knoll boasts some of the most featured and sculpted sandstone in the region, sits just outside Zion NP, and offers sport climbing. Long used by guide companies for climbing and short canyoneering programs, sport climbs development began in 2005. The high elevation (6000') and west-facing aspect make this a great place to beat the summer heat, especially in the morning. The lushness of the surroundings with shady corridors, unexpected alcoves, and hidden slots offer a unique climbing experience."

Some of these grades felt really soft, but some felt pretty accurate. All info is from the previously mentioned guidebook. Please submit corrections/additions as necessary.

Getting There

From I-15, take Exit 16 and head NE on Hwy 9 to Virgin. Turn left (north) onto Kolob Terrace Road and travel for 10.6 miles. Just after leaving Zion NP (there's a sign), turn left onto a sandy road and immediately bear left uphill to the obvious circular parking area. The trail descends through oak trees to the wash. Turn right and follow the wash for ~200 yards until you see a trail on the left with a rock staircase. If you hit the exit of the slot canyons, you've gone too far.

Location on the map is the parking area.
