Mt. Nebo Wilderness on south side of Santaquin Canyon. Details
The Mount Nebo Wilderness boundary parallels approximately 100-200 yards south of the Santaquin Canyon road from the mouth of the canyon to Tinney Flat Campground. Wilderness rules blm.gov/wo/st/en/info/regul… apply within the wilderness area (nothing mechanized or motorized allowed, including power drills).
DescriptionThis fun climb does seem to be getting quite a bit of traffic for the area.
Another route called BRING A FRIEND is 1 meter to the right of SPQ and it shares the anchor. It doesn't seem as positive and may be a bit harder. Named after my favorite Drive Inn burger joint in Santaquin. And also the day I went back to replace the anchors on COMING FULL CIRCLE, one of the highschoolers waiting for her TR on the route was really the Santaquin Prom Queen!
Pitch #1: Climb interesting pocket/disjointed crack features up the sustained limestone face. Homogeneous for its grade. 5.10a, 30m.
