Description 

An isolated area several miles south of the main Ibex crag. The Cape offers quiet, secluded climbing with plenty of sun and a number of quality routes.

Getting There 

Drive south from the Ibex Well and take the first right at a fork in the road about a mile south of the Ibex Well. Drive about 4 miles west, passing a small road on the right and a parking area with an old truck bed camper. The Cape is the collection of crags that is close to the road and is a short distance (1/2 mile) from an intersecting road that runs north-south. Warm Point, a bouldering area found in the Ibex bouldering section of MP, is just west of The Cape.

Climbing Season

For the Ibex area.

Rock Climbing Photo: The start of the Campsite TR.

Campsite TR 5.11 6c+ 23 VIII- 23 E4 5c  Utah : West Desert : ... : Campsite Wall
The climb starts from a big, spacious, flat ledge situated above camp which is kind of a neat little hang.
