Wasatch Front Rock Climbing Routes
Little Cottonwood Canyon
Located 15 minutes south and east of Salt Lake City.
Canyon is composed mostly of Granite rock. The rock in this canyon is
not the same as other popular climbing areas like Yosemite. Here the
rock crystals are larger and the bond between them not nearly as strong.
When climbing in Little Cottonwood Canyon expect to find it a little
dirty and most of the moves to be friction by nature. Walls like The
Egg have deposits of harder rock that erode slower leaving knobs and
other features in the surface of the granite. There are walls in this
canyon like Hellgate Buttress which is Limestone and Humane
Society Wall which is Quartzite.

"..... and the climbing in Lamoille Canyon is as good
as it gets! There are routes that are very similar those found on
Yosemite and Joshua Tree."
