Freeze Creek Rock Climbing
lying in the sun without jackets climbing in Janua...
Freeze Creek is private property belonging to the Emigration Oaks Home Owners Association. If visiting Freeze Creek, please park discreetly at the locked gate and hike up avoiding littering or loud noise. It is definitely secluded and a fun place to visit, but unless you live there...it is technically discouraged to visit. I don't foresee any problems for the climber/hiker following the trail to the crags...it is beautiful hiking with great views of the central Wasatch. Entering Freeze Creek does not put the hiker or climber on some one's property or backyard. This is common ground to the EO Association.
This is in Emigration Canyon in the Emigration Oaks residential area. For Freeze Creek, drive past Ruth's Diner one mile to Pioneer Fork Road. Drive up PFR about 1.5 miles. Freeze Creek is unmarked except for a green locked gate on the north side of the road. Park here and then start hiking.
Freezer Buttress is the first north facing limestone crag one encounters on the left side of the trail while hiking north. The sandstone crags are at the head of the drainage.
Climbing Season For the Wasatch Range area.

Emmigration Canyon is a nice bike ride, though the Emmigration Oaks road may be a bit of a bear. Riding your bike to the trailhead may be the ticket for discreet access.
Expect the Freezer to live up to its name of you're there in the winter.

I don't understand these access issue warnings. They don't say the issue or if you need to avoid or what. Can you climb here or what's the dealio?

Maybe read the description again.
Be discreet, no litter, no loud noise.
Its private land. Be neither seen nor heard and it won't be a deal is what I'm thinking. Show up with a loud crew, stereos blaring, boom boxes, bunch of barking dogs, tossing litter all over, sprayin' "fetch" (or worse) at the top of your lungs, etc, and kiss the acccess goodbye.
Kinda simple, really. Low profile is the way. With private land, climbing is a privledge, not a right.
