A more random and obscure part of Ibex, the South Corridor has a small variety of crags within a 10 to 20 minute approach. Like most of the areas, traditional and sport lines exist in the corridor. A 60 meter rope will suffice along with a single set of cams, and 8 to 10 draws.

Protected by the wind and fairly exposed, you can find solace on cold bitter days. Crags here include the Scorpion Slab, Holey Moley, the Birth Canal and New Year's Rock.

Getting There 

This cluster of random crags are located between the Corral Crags and Snakeskin Buttress.

Right around the first bolt.

Scorpios Make Great Lovers 5.10a 6a 18 VI+ 18 E1 5a  UT : Ibex : ... : Scorpion Slab
A fantastic sport climb that has all kinds of exciting movement on it. Not so much slabby as crimpy with good quartzite friction. The first bolt is an easy clip but getting to the second is committing. Make sure your belayer is paying attention should you biff it. Follow the bolts up to a ledge and then duck a couple feet right past a couple more bolts to a chain anchor at the top of the formation....[more]   Browse More Classics in UT
