Maple Canyon

Located 85 minutes south of Salt Lake City.

                     

      Maple canyon is quite an amazing place to go rock climbing. At first it doesn't appear to be that great of a place to climb and it is hard to imagine that this desert place could be such a climbing Mecca. Many people have said that they don't trust the rock or the protection provided in this canyon. But I assure you that the holds are there and the climbing is excellent. Be sure to bring a helmet for the belayer because routes less traveled tend to have more rock fall. Belaying your climbing partner from an angle that will protect you is recommended.

 

      Here the routes are range from 5.6 to 5.14a and are very consistent. Most climbs in this canyon have an easy couple of moves at first. But don't let that fool you into thinking that the climb is going to be easy. Most routes are consistently hard and leave you wondering where the spot is to rest. Well...... There aren't too many rest spots on any of the climbs and it's not like there are only one or 2 spots on the climb that have the rating given to the climb. They are very consistent and very hard. When the animals who bolted most of American Fork Canyon needed a new place to challenge their abilities, they looked to Maple Canyon.

 

      There is a small campground that is within walking distance of almost all of the climbs. But small is the key word. If you show up on Friday DO NOT expect to find an open campsite. The road above the campground is only recommended for 4 wheel drive so most visitors will not be able to go further up the canyon to camp. All the property at the mouth of the canyon is private property and is closed to camping and climbing. So plan ahead and show up on a Tuesday or Wednesday to get the better camping spots. Camping costs 7 dollars and the new restrooms are great compared to the only outhouse that was there 2 years ago.

"..... 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."
