Featured Route For Bouldering
Rock Climbing Photo: Surfboard Sit.

Surfboard Sit Start V4 6B  Utah : Wasatch Range : ... : 5 Mile Boulders
Pull up onto the arete from a sitting position using a low right hand crimper and a far left edge - make a big move out right to a decent sidepull (left toe hooking helps), shuffle the feet and slap around until you gain the starting position for Surfboard. Finish as usual. Note: you might be able to go straight up, but the right sidepull makes the problem....[more]   Browse More Classics in Utah

You can occasionally climb in LCC in winter, but certainly don't count on it. With that said, Momentum for routes and the SLC Front for bouldering are both awesome gyms!

Is there a bouldering guide book to the area?? And what is season for this area? Thanks!

check out:
Utah Bouldering
That book covers climbing in Little Cottonwood, Ogden, Joe's Valley, Ibex and Big Bend.

Season here tends to be March - June and picks up again around September - whenever there's too much snow.
Climbing in the summer is limited since it gets so hot, so you have to drive up to White Pine or find some really good shade.

Yo, left my Petzl chalkbag in the Gate bouldering area. Its tan-ish and has a little guy climbing on it (the little dudes eye is bulging) and its a zip up with a black metolius biner on it. Left it up there Friday Oct 5, 2012, if you gots it and you're generous, hit me up

Looking pretty good... You might want to borrow a black bible if you can, half of the boulder and problems at WPS are already named.

I, like so many, find LCC to be a cruel mistress...
Its a love-hate type relationship. With that said, here I offer a haiku:

So many great boulders
And such fickle conditions
Don't count on sending

5 good days a year...that's all we seem to get...its over till spring
