Description 

Dry Creek is located just outside the Alpine, Ut. city limits. This area is most popular for hiking trails going to Horsetail Falls. It is made up of a handful of granite boulders. This area was developed in the early 2000's by Andy Knight. He contacted me and informed me that it had been developed. Still waiting on any more information from him as for names, ratings ect.

I claimed a few first ascents on the ones that had more loose rock and vegetation on them. Please let me know of any discrepancies in what I've posted. I posted this area as a service to other climbers so they know where to go and what to climb.

Getting There 

Go to Deer Creek/Dry Creek/ North Mountain trail. Located just outside of Alpine Ut, past the rodeo grounds. Look at the map, it's very straight forward, there are very trafficked and well used paved roads to this trailhead. Park in the parking lot and follow the directions to the specific areas as follows.

Achy Flaky Start V4 6B  Utah : Dry Creek : ... : Fortune Cookie Boulder
Probably the best climb in this area. Start with hands about chest level in the crack. There is a tiny foot hold you can use and then smear the rest. Dyno up to the crack and follow it up to a chicken head top out....[more]   Browse More Classics in Utah
