On the north end of the city of St. George sits this public park that families and visitors love to explore. Looking north, you see the word 'Dixie' painted white on the cliff band right next to the road. Expect crowds at peak times but hosts a few fun boulder problems and some even newer bolted and top-roped routes in this typical desert sandstone. It is a hueco-tropolis of fun bouldering/climbing. Expect to find a fair amount of shattered glass, some engraved graffiti and trash. Watch those huecos for glass.

Perhaps someone that knows the area better can provide other details. I will post a few boulder problems and include pictures of a few short routes with names as well as others I am not familiar with. Because I don't know the boulder problem ratings, for now I will list them as V0.

Although I am from out of town, I decided to post the area so that others wishing to find easy access to bouldering while in the area would have some idea.

Todd Goss' book Rock Climbs of Southwest Utah provides an excellent overview of the area (and all other St. George areas for that matter) and can be picked up at the Desert Rat on St. George Boulevard or the Outdoor Outlet among other places. This guide is fantastic and even includes quality color photos.

Getting There 

Follow the roads to the north of the city and park in one of the areas that serve the park. The best place to park is on the Pioneer Park Loop road that is more to the east.
