This area is specifically dedicated to deep water soloing. This means there is no protection, the climbs at most are 30 feet, and falls result in entering water. This type of climbing is much more high risk than traditional sport or trad routes. The gear you bring is up to you, however usually is a chalk bag, and shoes. Any gear you bring will most likely get wet. The climbing is on the two cliff areas that many people cliff jump from. The rock is traditional quartzite found in the ogden area, and most climbs are still dirty as not many people climb them. Bringing a brush could be a good idea.

  • ***** Photos and routes coming soon, need to get out there to get good quality pictures!

Getting There 

Drive up to Causey Reservoir and park in the first parking area, right after the dam. This will result in the least distance paddling. You will want to paddle due east. The land will come to a point on your right, and once you pass the point, the water will go in three directions; North, South, and East. At the intersection of these waterways, the North corner will have the "Freshie Cliff" with many different easy climbs (5.6-5.9). The southern corner is where the "Big Cliff" and most the harder climbs will be located.

There are quite a few routes at Causey Reservoir outlined in the "Ogden Area Climbing Guide" book by David G. Robb.

The rock in the area is definitely limestone.
