There are many unclimbed towers and promising boulders in the area. Amazing potential here. You have to hike a ways though.

Getting There 

Travel to where Buckhorn Wash Road crosses the San Rafael River. On the north side of the river Mexican Mountain Road leads off east through a campground. Drive 4 to 6 miles down the dirt road to another obvious legal dirt road heading north (left). This heads into Red Canyon.

Climbing Season

For the San Rafael Swell - North area.

Little Jimmy the White Power Leprechaun 5.7 5a 15 V+ 13 MVS 4b  UT : San Rafael Swell : ... : Red Canyon
Fun little Tower. Start up a chimney between the two towers. Once you get up on the bulge head back until you see a crack/dihedral/off-width/chimney thing to the left and head up. You will be on a large platform in front of the final summit. Build a belay anchor here. After this platform you have about 8 feet of 5.5 climbing to the summit....[more]   Browse More Classics in UT
