Aqueduct Area, The Rock Climbing
BETA PHOTO: East face of The Aqueduct. Photo taken south from...
The Aqueduct Area is south-east and south-west facing with a 10-minute approach just down from Dogwood. A few bolted routes and a few trad routes are here for the picking with ratings of 5.8 to 5.12. 2 bolt anchors are present for all the climbs.
Just before reaching Dogwood, on the left is a pull-out
with a lot of loose gravel. Hike up the trail to the NW, up a steep dirt hill, continue past 2 small switchbacks, loose rock, and aquaduct debris (Thanks UP&L). The SW face can be reached by scrambling down and left from the SE face onto a ledge.

Face climb on edges through fractures and broken cracks with great feet. Placing gear is a little pumpy. Don't get sucked left - head up and a little right, intersecting the little roof on the right. Seems like you wind up placing gear at your chest/waist a lot....[more] Browse More Classics in UT

Good crag for early spring or late fall climbing. A well established trail begins at a pull-out on the north side of the road 40 feet or so up-canyon of milepost 3, generally across from the Dogwood Picnic Area. About 50 feet from the pavement, the trail splits, with the right continuing up the gully and the left cutting west across the slope of the gully. Take the left trail. It should be obvious all the way to the crag, and take about 5 minutes. Beware of poison oak just before the crag.
