I haven't done any climbing out in the west desert and just picked up the guide book. Looks like there are is a TON to do and I want to focus my attention first of all on some of the classics.

I'm looking for your favorite routes in the areas covered by the "Utah's West Desert" guidebook (whether the routes are in the book or not). My preference is trad, up to about 5.10b, though I will clip bolts here and there.

Spray me down! What are your favorite routes?

Start on that Quartermoon Tower. See how many ways you can get to the top. ddriver

Ibex is great, best climbing out there IMO and pretty easy access compared to other west desert crags. Marjum canyon is cool as fuck but the limestone there is SHARP and the routes are mostly sport. Eric Chabot

One of the coolest towers I've done, although it's sport the sense of adventure is definitely there.

Friends in death.
Candyland in West Sawtooth is a nostalgic moderate fav of mine. The Anticrack is a cool feature and worthy. White Rocks was a surprise- full grit factor but some quality lines. Arie
