Mill Creek Canyon is located between Parley's Canyon and Mt Olympus in the SLC area. It is one of the few canyons in the area that will allow dogs. There is an access fee of $2.25 per vehicle payable upon exit.

The area is mostly frequented by hikers and bikers. There aren't usually many climbers around.

There is a pic of Tommy Caldwell in the latest Climbing mag climbing something in Mill Creek. Anyone know where that is?

I didnt think there was another Mill Creek.
That wall he was on is pretty original. I would have thought someone would recognize the vertical stripes.
