This is a area just east of the slide area up Cedar Canyon on the South side of the road.
It is the Soft limestone/sandstone of the canyon and is pretty good rock.

Getting There 

Drive up HWY 14 about 8 miles up the canyon and pull off in the pullout just past the slide area. Cross the highway and walk east until you reach the gully. Bushwack up the gully until you reach the wall. Head back west along the wall for about 10-15 minutes and the Cave route will appear in a north-west facing Chimney that leads to a dihedral.

The Cave Route 5.9 5c 17 VI 17 HVS 5a  Utah : Cedar City : ... : The Slide Area
The route starts in a 20' chimney with a convenient crack on the inside for a couple of nut placements. The crux is getting out of the chimney up to the dihedral. Continue up the hand crack in the dihedral smearing and edging amongst the jams to the Rap hangers.The route is rarely climbed judging by how dirty it was....[more]   Browse More Classics in Utah
