This faces south and is right off of the road, you really could belay out of your car seat.

The rock is good but can be a bit dusty.

Getting There 

About 10.75 miles up HWY 14 from Cedar City lies this man made tunnel. If your driving up it's on your left. Once you pass the tunnel the rock disappears almost immediately and the Southern Utah University Cabin is just uphill.

If you go high and walk on it, there are a few ankle clippers (ie you reach down and clip the bolt) and the crux is near the start (5.10).If you stay low and hand traverse the rail it has big dynamic reaches between holds and bad feet. There are a couple bolts you have to crank up and lock off to clip, but it's do-able. (5.11++)...[more]   Browse More Classics in Utah
