Dogwood Crag
Located about 1 mile up Big Cottonwood Canyon. The crag is on the right as you head up canyon. The wall is right by the stream. Park on the road at one of the pullouts and either cross the stream or walk in through the Dogwood Picnic area that is down canyon from the crag. The west crag consists of sport climbs ranging from 5.5 to 5.9. The further east you go the harder the climbs get. You can easily walk to the top of the wall to place anchors. This is a fun beginner to intermediate climbing area that stays cool because of itís proximity to the stream.

Peteís Rock
Located on Wasatch Blvd. Itís on the left as you head south and is signed for the Mount Olympus Trail Head. Look for the big rock! There is a parking lot at the base of the crag. This is a great place to go and get a quick workout. The bouldering is good. Try a traverse from the bottom to the upper end and back. See how soon you are crying for Momma! You can hike to the top and set up top ropes for climbs ranging from 5.5 on up. This is a good early or late season crag.

The Trip Directory is a listing of common, and not so common, activities that members of the club have experienced. It is hoped that this listing will aid members in choosing where to go on their next organized activity. The information might be updated to provide pictures, trail conditions, and recommendations as to the time of year, expectations etc. We are hoping this will be a valuble resource.
