Small area of granite just outside of Cedar City. You can see the main (largest) formations from town. Don't let the vague location descriptions deter you from heading out. It's such a small area if you check out the route pictures you'll be able to find the climbs. There is also plenty of quality bouldering to be had with a little cleaning involved. *Warning* This is NOT a destination area by any means. It's simply Cedar's backyard, good for a quick fix.
Head west on Hwy. U-56 from Cedar City to Lund Hwy; head north for about five miles to Mid-Valley Rd., then west for about two miles. Take a left on dirt road directly after the white fence. After about 200 yards turn right onto the most developed dirt road heading towards the largest formation. There are alot of dirt roads out there that all can essentially lead to the formations. Just pick one when you get close enough.
Great climbing up a perfect and high face. This face shares the same awesome rock as The Shaped Wall. The line starts on the left edge and traverses toward the chimney. The first move is a big cross through to a shallow two finger pocket. There are a few jugs at mid height next to the chimney to rest on. Climb back to the center of the face and top out there. A sloper pull at the top is the crux. ...[more]Browse More Classics in UT
Glad to see people climbing out here. Definitely an overlooked area. There are quite a few good boulder problems on and surrounding the mound. Check out the split boulder just to the west of the mound in the trees. There are at least 3 classic problems, with more potential test pieces. I think it is in the center here, not sure though: bit.ly/cMRx2I
