Description 

This is a popular river right campsite area on the Green River in Desolation Canyon. It is pretty much only accessible as are other areas in this beautiful canyon via boot or raft on the river.
Rock quality, as noted by Andrew in the area description, can be variable. Here, it is mostly very good and well featured.

Getting There 

Lower (down river from historic cabin) Rock Creek Campsite. About a 5 minute approach walk from the river's edge toward the tight little side canyon.

A steep juggy start leads to finer features and then trend left to a t...[more]   Browse More Classics in Utah
