South Fork of Taylor Creek
Kolob Canyon is the "other" Zion. Part of the park, but accessed via a separate entrance, this area encompasses the less-explored but equally spectacular northern reaches of the Zion. The canyon is home to many long routes, both free and aid, as well as a great sport climbing crag and some high quality bouldering.
This area feels untouched and has a strange beauty about it. Expect to get out of this area what you put into it. Weather can be a little more alpine as Kolob sits at a much higher elevation than the main area.
17 miles north of Toquerville on I-15 from Toquerville; this is as if you were leaving Zion's main canyon and driving towards Cedar City.
Weather station 6.4 miles from here

The rest of the pitch is fun and aesthetic....[more] Browse More Classics in UT
