Planning an impromptu trip to St. George for (hopefully) a days worth of climbing at the Solstice crag at Woodbury Road Crags. Just wondering if anyone has been there recently that can offer some advice/updates, besides what's posted on the page. Thanks! sclair

I climbed about a day and a half at The Solstice wall a few weeks ago and it was nice during the day. If you camp definitely bring firewood, and it was very windy at night. We were the only people sleeping in a tent.

I can't think of much else to say, the climbs are fun, kind of technical but they have lots of little loose chunks on them, and don't fall on anything less than vertical or you'll get shredded. you can climb in t-shirt and shorts but carry lots of layers with you because as soon as the sun goes down the temperature drops really fast.

And if you climb at Solstice and you have a 70 M rope, bring it. There are a few climbs that you need it for. Dan White

Sw utah/ az strip book helps... Wind blows all day.. And night. Sleep in da car. Rock is abrasive +1 for the 70m. Black rocks closed this time of year? Or what? Donovan Allen

Awesome thanks!! I wanted to go to solstice because the longer routes are more interesting to me and I have a small obsession with limestone. However, on the way down from SLC the trucks clutch started acting up, so now we might end up at black rocks and turtle wall. I've never climbed on basalt, so that's exciting! sclair

Prophecy wall is right up the road from all that stuff as well. Head towards Veyo and look for mile marker 18 turn left (sw) you'll see the wall after a few minutes. If long routes are interesting to you... It gets great afternoon/ evening sun. Slcair if you truely have a proclivity towards limestone I recommend lime kiln canyon. It's the best limestone I've ever been on. Typically all the routes are 250'-500' ft long. Have fun! Donovan Allen
