Rolling Stone Area Rock Climbing
With a couple hand and finger cracks, as well as a strenuous sport route, this rock offers just enough to offset the obscene approach.
Park at the Birches picnic area, about 1.75 miles from the BCC neon sign. Find the restroom building on the picnic grounds. Walk behind it and start climbing the talus slope. Keep heading up this talus until your lungs explode, then continue further up to a blocky formation on the west fringe of the talus slope. The approach sucks. The climbing is better.

Finish as per Provolone....[more] Browse More Classics in Utah

Cheese Block Rock is east from Rolling Stone accross the talas. Routes are all short and not terribly inspiring, ya know, kinda...cheesy. Surprisingly fun though. And if you've hiked up that talas...
Thanks to Doug Heinrich for loaning us his drill back in '99. It only held a charge to drill 1 hole usually, so we made WAY too many marches up and down that talas to put these routes in.
