Access Issue: This area is full of petroglyphs and is off-limits to climbing. Details

Description

Top ropes aplenty, kids (& sometimes dogs), new girlfriends…. This is where we started all new climbers at Keyhole. However, that was before we became culturally sensitive to the area. These low-angle slabs on the left side of the mouth of Keyhole, from the Chockstone left to the orange and black streaked wall, are the centerpiece of petroglyphs at Keyhole and shouldn’t be climbed or scrambled on at all. Routes listed here are for historical purposes only. For climbing to continue being a recognized and legal recreational activity in the rest of the Lower Canyon, please respect the 100’ rule and don’t climb on or near the petroglyphs.

Getting There

All new climbers at Keyhole are taught to do climbs in the same, or better style, than the first ascent. Anyone can lower the bar, but it’s far more admirable to raise the bar.

Please be respectful of the traditional climbing at Keyhole, first instilled by the Stone Masters, and help maintain the longevity and traditional flavor of the area, i.e.

- Never add bolts to established climbs- this includes belays/rappel stations.
- On new routes use gear whenever possible, bolts are always a last resort.
- Lead new climbs ground up, even if top roped or cleaned on rappel first. Jan 9, 2018
