Description 

This area tends to get early afternoon sun and stays in the sun until late in the evening. One of the least popular areas in Joe's valley and hosts some mega-classics. I have asked around and it doesn't seem to be the trend in Joe's Valley development to name "areas" as the boulders tend to be a bit spread out from one another (at least at the newer areas). I have given a place holder name that I will gladly replace upon any information that can be provided from one of the developers. Thanks!


Getting There 

Halfway between the 8 Mile area and the Mine Cart. Upon passing the Mine Cart (on your left) take the next right hand turn out and park there. Go back (toward the Mine Cart) and a Joe's trail (i.e. crappy trail) will lead upward towards the boulders. Take this trail until it intersects with another trail that parallels the road. There are three main ares that all branch off from this point. The Black Dahlia rests uphill and right in a cluster of boulders and trees. The Obelisk should be mostly visible (you can see it from the road) and is up and right from here. Groundation rests in the wash behind the Obelisk.

Featured Route For New Land

The Obelisk V9 7C PG13  UT : Joe's Valley : ... : New Land
The crux is getting the right hand pinch on the arete and moving to the lip. A slightly overhanging crimp and compression problem that is sure to become a classic. PG-13 rating because while it is not super tall I did think I was going to die when I did it. And yes... that divot taken out of the right hand crimp at the lip is from my foot crumpling as I did the committing mantle....[more]   Browse More Classics in UT

Any word on how that project just above Groundation is going? Has anybody sent it yet?

At the time of this writing the project has not been done. Jamie Emerson has claimed to do 2 of the three moves (including the crux). I believe he estimates it at V13/14 or so. He had a post on the project at his site B3bouldering.com
