Know the location of this area? Show us! We don't know it, but we're working on cool new features that need it!

Description 

It has good limestone and has steep slab climbing to vertical and overhanging routes.

The area is surrounded by a mixture of aspens and pines. It gets morning shade and late afternoon sunshine.

Climbable from spring to fall.


Getting There 

Drive up Cedar Canyon Road 9.3 miles, park at the pull out on the left. The parking area is below the Adventure Climb area (also know as Rappel Area Wall). Go left around the corner of the wall. Follow trail up past a large obvious boulder. Cross the stream continue walking up the trail a few hundred yards. Look for a small trail heading to your left and down towards the stream. Cross the stream and walk up to the wall ahead. You will see the memorial cross that gives the area its name off to the left of the wall. The cross commemorates the site of a rappelling death in 1996.

It is a 5 minute approach.

La Santa Muerta 5.11a/b 6c 23 VIII- E3 5c  UT : Cedar City : ... : Graveside Matter Wall
La Santa Muerta is an excellent pitch. The route climbs on solid grey limestone up great features. Crux comes at the very top in the last 2-3 moves. A bit pumpy and a great addition for graveside.An excellent pitch, thanks to the FA for the work you put it to bolt these routes....[more]   Browse More Classics in UT

The one with the right traverse to start and then up is "too much cock, not enough lycra". I thought it was 11c.

You can access more routes by hiking west along the rim from too much caulk not enough lycra. They are on the rim above the road.

As far As "Too Much Cock, not Enough Lycra" Its solid 12a (especially if you are short). It been established at this grade for a long time.

This is a wonderful area, and the short hike in is worth doing even if you are not going to climb. It is a beautiful, secluded, forest-y area with the background noise of a running stream, and great rock to boot.

Does anyone have any photos to post?
