This East facing crag contains 30 routes ranging from 5.1- 5.12. It receives sun all morning and doesn't see a lot of traffic as it is quite hot most of the time. The crag does contain a few multi-pitch routes with The Eagle's Nest 5.10c (5p) being the proudest line on the wall.
Park near the bridge and cross the creek to the North. Walk East along the base of the wall until you reach the sunny east face of the crag. Eagle's Nest and Eagle's Tenders will be the first routes you pass.

Featured Route For The Early Bird Crag
Rib Cage 5.5 4b 13 IV+ MS 4a UT : Maple Canyon : ... : The Early Bird Crag
This is one of the best beginner routes I have done in Maple, along with Bullets Over Bagdad. A really long and fun route with a nice view from the top. It follows the left side of a black arete and so it stays shaded until late morning, unlike the other routes at Early Bird Crag....[more] Browse More Classics in UT
