The Doghouse is a fun, steep area consisting of primarily sport routes with a chimney, slab, and corner crack thrown in for prosperity.
The Doghouse is found in an alcove directly across from the Snow Canyon's sand dunes. Its most easily reached by parking at the West Canyon Day Lot. Approach via the faint climbers trail on the east side of the road and make a short scramble up a slab to gain the crag. Approach time is approximately five minutes.
