Description 

Area 51 is a collection of a few remarkably good boulders that are 5 minutes uphill from the parking area. Hard problems like Black Lung (V13) and Resident Evil (V10/11) are just a few feet from easier classics like Super Sloper (V2). Great rock, great landings, a good concentration of problems, and some truly classic problems that get sun until late in the afternoon make this one of the best areas at Joe's.

Getting There 

Take the trail from the end of the parking lot uphill, then veer off to the right at an obvious cairn after a minute or two. Follow this trail for another minute or two to the boulders.

Black Lung V13 8B  Utah : Joe's Valley : ... : Area 51
Insanely hard deadpoints to very small incut holds. This is a brilliant line up a stellar boulder. Start with your left hand on a decent pinch and a nasty little hold for your right. Kudos to anyone who can pull the first two moves....[more]   Browse More Classics in Utah
