Description

A relatively unknown granite/quartzite/basalt rock crag perched 700 feet up Black Mountain near Lost Creek just south of Salina, Utah. The rock is relatively low-quality with lots of choss and moss so likely uninviting to many would-be climbers. The area is divided into 5 walls named after the Native American tribes of Utah. From North to South, they are Shoshone Wall, Goshute Wall, Ute Wall, Paiute Wall, and Navajo Wall.

Nuwuvi (pronounced new-woo-vee) means Southern Paiute in Southern Paiute.

Getting There

Take Utah State Route 24 from Salina and take a left onto Sage Flat Road after 1.4 miles. Take a soft right immediately after to stay on Sage Flat Road. Turn left onto Lost Creek Road at 1.4 miles then continue on this dirt road for 4.5 miles. The North Nuwuvi Ledge Trailhead is unmarked but is at the large pile of gray rock on the east side of the road. Coordinates are 38.86907, -111.86656.

To get to the South Nuwuvi Ledge Trailhead, drive south on Lost Creek Road an additional 1.6 miles and pull off to the side of the road. Coordinates are 38.84833, -11186750.
