Crawdad Canyon is private property. MORE INFO >>>


This area has some great moderate/hard routes ranging from 5.10c to 5.13c (there is one 5.8). The wall sees shade most of the day and makes for a great escape from the Southern Utah heat, even in mid-summer.

Getting There 

From the pool, follow the stream along its South side until you reach a rope and plank bridge. Do not cross the bridge, the routes on the Rubicon are to the Right. From the North side, follow the stream until you cross the bridge, the Rubicon is directly across it.
