Bootleg Butte from the canyon bottom.


This Butte has a tower look and feel to it. Most of the rock encountered is of good quality but some of it is dirty. It resides at the mouth of a side canyon where another stream flows into Cedar Canyon Creek.

Getting There 

After the double lanes going up canyon from Cedar City on HWY 14 park in the big pullout on your left. The pullout has a big boulder in it. Pick the best route across the narrow valley and start you downhill slog. Hike to the stream and walk North to the side canyon. The Butte should be visible from here.

I hiked up to the Butte and found that there are multiple seemingly good cracks to climb all over the formation (FA opportunities??). I also hiked up into the saddle where I assumed Independent Hangover started and found that the views were absolutely amazing.
