Knightland is a great climbing area in Lefthand Fork Canyon. Many of the climbs were done by Tom & Jeff Knight. It's a nice area with little traffic and fun climbing. It is broken up into different walls: Stairway to Heaven (south exposure), Lemonstone (west facing) and Hidden Wall (east facing). The rock is limestone and tends to be broken up in spots, so as always climb with care.

Getting There 

From the Lefthand Fork turn drive 1.8 miles. Look for the obvious stair step crack of Stairway to Heaven on the left. Park in the small pull out on the south side of the road. A short hike up the trail brings you to the area.

The crux comes early with the overhanging hand crack. Once you get past this pull yourself into the batshit .8 or so squeeze chimney. There is an old bolt (no hanger) somewhere in there. It is a pretty cool position in this part as there is nothing beneath you. The 'stairway' part is fairly mellow at .8 or .9. Here we chose to keep traversing, but you should probably pull the roof. It looks much harder and more fun. Belay and walk off or down-climb to the chain anchors below. Note: We mi...[more]   Browse More Classics in Utah

Great place to climb, but be very careful of loose rock. We had a bowling ball size come off the other day and put a great climber in the hospital for a bit. There is little traffic so still plenty of loose rock.

My climbing partner and I climbed at Hidden Wall a couple days ago and we think he left his nearly new La Sportiva Testarossa shoes at the base of the Hidden Wall or at the pull out for Hidden Wall. If anyone is in the area and willing to mail them to us it would be much appreciated. We were just starting a 6 week climbing road trip and could really use these:) PM for an address we can have you mail them to. I'll happily paypal you to reimburse the cost of the shipping.

Found it, perfect place to practice for tougher longer climbs. Will want to wear approach shoes if you have them.
