Description 

This area offers some fantastic climbs on limestone of good quality, though some of the newer routes need some cleaning still. Although there is some garbage and shells from shooters in the parking area, this isn't as popular a place to target practice as Lone Rock. The higher areas aren't in the line of fire if that is an issue.
There are other names for the cliffs in this area (and some of the routes) but I am going off of what is in James Garrett's book Utah's West Desert here as it's the only tangible information I can find (Good book, by the way, check it out).

Getting There 

Take I80 West from SLC or East from Wendover to exit 77 Dugway/Rowley. Head South under the freeway and take the first dirt road to your left (East). Follow this until you can turn Left on a 'road' that goes North a bit then around to the East. Park in the large pullout/shooting area on the right.

An interesting adventure multi-pitch sport route that ascends some unique color banded, rough, and pocketed rock.Pitch 1 starts easy following a lower 5.6 angle past a variety of glue-ins and pitons to a 2 bolt anchor.Pitch 2 is where this route turns on its charm with several nice well protected 5.9 moves to a ledge with a 2 bolt belay.Pitch 3 was my favorite pitch with several nice pockets and holds with consistent 5.9 difficulty to 2 bolts, chains, and a rap ring belay.Pitch 4 opens up to a g...[more]   Browse More Classics in UT
