New directions for salt lake climbers, drive down i-15 until you reach the bangeter highway turnoff, exit and turn left, follow bangeter up the hill and straight through the light that has a chevron on the corner, keep going straight when you see the red rock get ready for a left hand turn that will take you to the parking lot. The dentist made a new trail that will confuse the first timers so watch for the first trail merger and take the switch back which will lead you to a higher trail. from here you can make it no problem. Enjoy the rock and clean up after yourself and others, this is my playground as well as yours.

I don't know why the description of this area says that 'the routes are listed from left to right'. They appear to be listed in alphabetical order on the site and that certainly doesn't match the left to right orientation at the area. Am I missing something?

They are not in order left to right.. I believe someone took off the tags and the routes were re tagged... not sure if they kept their old names or not.

This is a fun place to start off your season while you are waiting for the snow to melt. Lots of routes really close together. Most of them are pretty easy, but there are a few challenging ones. There are many youth groups and scouts brought here so beware! If you are alone, it probably won't be for long. The only other downside I can think of to this place is the rope drag. Plenty of these routes drag. Overall it is a fun place to climb, but once the canyon snow is gone, you won't see me there.

There is apparently a new parking area right at the base of the trail heading up to the crag. There is a nice sign identifying the location and the trail has signs directing you all the way up.

Very fun place to get in some TR climbs with the family.

If you have a trad rack bring it here. You could lead some of the routes on gear or at least pratice placing gear and clip some bolts if you are learning to trad climb.

Like Donovan mentioned, this is a great place to climb in the early spring. I'd recommend going later in the day for the most sun though. With the easy, labeled routes and benches, this is as close to climbing in the gym as you can get outside and is a great place to bring people who are new to outside sport climbing. There are also some awesome views of the Salt Lake valley!
