The Principality is a perfect summer area for the 5.12 climber. The rock is a high quality and very compact welded tuff. The routes range from 35 to 65 feet in length and tend to require strong fingers and good footwork. The area offer several very fine test pieces but does not offer very much in terms of easier climbing.
About a mile from panguitch lake their is a large meadow if you look north across the meadow you will see the cliffs standing on the hill side surrounded by trees.

Sustained crimps and monos to a crux between the fourth and fifth bolts then the route ends with twenty feet of fun five eleven climbing. This route could be classic but there are a lot of manufactured holds. Kind of a disappointment but it's still one of the most beautiful climbs i've seen....[more] Browse More Classics in UT
