Description

The good: Really fun holds, side pulls, and pockets.

The bad: it faces south, so it's hot. Lots of broken glass at the base (be careful with your shoes!). The paint used to paint Dixie made for one slippery hold.

This is a popular rappelling spot, but it's also a really fun climb.

Location

This route is at the famous Dixie Overlook, in St. George, UT. goo.gl/maps/cqryl

To start the route, hike to the top of the the overlook and set up your rope. You'll want at least 2 8ft slings, a little bit longer would be good, to hang a carabiner over the ledge (minimizing wear on the rope). You can walk down the trail, towards the parking lot, and around to get to the base of the cliff.

The route is just left of the D for "Dixie".

Protection

Two bolts, rebar for back-up.

Great info; I didn't even see those bolts when I did it years ago. I ran a sling from the anchors on the top a good 4 feet from the ledge, of which there were three. Those seemed reliable. Apr 3, 2016
