The two photos titled Beta Photos are incorrect and should be removed to avoid confusion. All the cliff and crag names are wrong. Phil submitted a scanned picture of a hand drawn map with the correct names that the climbers have been using for decades.

Can we get this fixed on this web site?

In an attempt to preserve some degree of historical accuracy, I submit this map with the names the pioneer climbers of the 1980's gave to these craggy walls.

The top map, dated 2009, has the northern crags that this one (date unknown) doesn't. On the pages for the walls and crags where the two maps do overlap, why don't you give the name that the "pioneer climbers of the 80s" gave them. Both can be listed.

In general, it is very nice to read about the climbing history of these walls and routes, so the area and route descriptions are also a good place to mention the pioneers and their names for the area or route. We all appreciate a nice read.

Good suggestion Jon. I have changed the sub area listings to reflect the older names - adding the old names as "aka" since the new maps, pics and route descriptions show the new names as well - yet only 2 are really different "Last Wall" for South Canyon and "Corral Wall" for Parking Lot Rock - all the other older named areas are off limits to the public anyways....

The main point of these new maps is to show where the public boundaries are.
