Echo Canyon Seasonal Closure: Jan. 1 - second Saturday in April MORE INFO >>>


Home to the burley routes of Choss Cave, Mill Canyon is a quiet side canyon to Echo Canyon with just the one established climbing area so far and room to grow.

Note: Glue-in bolts are catching on as the superior choice for this type of rock.

Getting There 

From I-80 take exit 169 and drive east for 2.0 miles to a small canyon on the left (north) side of Echo Canyon Road. A dirt road starts into the canyon and ends abruptly. Park either on the side of Echo Canyon Road or up the short dirt road. Follow the canyon trail up the bottom of the canyon.

This route is fun, but it is a bit spooky. Stick clip the first 2 bolts and be ready for a little nervous-ness. Even the Brit thought so.......[more]   Browse More Classics in UT
