Description

The rock formations, like Sawtooth Canyon, are predominantly on the north side and face south. Rock is of poor to fair quality with the occasional hidden gem. Flared fissures and intrusive dikes abound.

A few old school routes can be found here, probably relics from the NOLS days. James Garret makes reference to this in his guidebook. At some point the original FA parties will have to come forth with beta (if they are not long since in the grave) or consensus will probably assign new names and ratings to the old climbs.

Isolation and peace and quiet are as valued here as the climbs. A few old mining relics and other historical artifacts remain.

Getting There

Painter Springs is located a few miles north of Sawtooth Canyon. It is one side-road north of the Sawtooth Canyon road if you are driving North on the Tule Valley Road. The Painter Springs road turns eastbound at a water tank/trough and the intersection of Tule Valley Road and Mile-and-a-Half Road.

There is a bench road that skirts the base of the mountain range and connects Sawtooth Canyon and Painter Springs but it is quite rough. Refer to "Utahs West Desert" by James Garret for additional information.
