Capitol Reef National Park
Capitol Reef from above Fruita
Capitol Reef National Park has a fair selection of good Wingate crack routes. The only detractions are sometimes long approaches, and an NPS moratorium on any new anchor bolting. There is also a moseratelt good bouldering area about fifteen minutes to the west of the park outside Bicknell.
Get to Capitol Reef either by way of highway 24 (from I-70 to Hanksville, and then west to the park), or by highway 50 (east off of I-15 from Scipio to Salina, and then southeast on highway 24 through Loa, Bicknell, and Torrey to the park).
Most (if not all) of the actual climbing areas are along the scenic drive, a paved road that goes along the backside of the reef south from the park visitor center.

This is the beautiful wide hand/tight fist crack of Capitol Reef. Climb a ramp to a stance below the large left facing corner. Climb up the corner to a two bolt anchor below the roof or continue through the roof, beware the possibly loose block, and continue to higher anchor. A stretchy 70 meter should get you down from the lower anchor....[more] Browse More Classics in UT

Cathedral Valley is indeed spectacular. Unfortunately it is off limits to climbing. From the close non-climbing inspection I have done of it is indeed similar to the Fisher Towers. Folks may have climbed on it prior to its closure (I am unsure of when it was officially closed). There are very similar towers further east (and out of the Park) along the northern edge of the Moroni Slopes and near Salt Wash mountainproject.com/v/the-muds...
