rock climb - rock canyon - April 19, 2015
Rock Canyon is a well developed area above BYU in Provo. It hosts a slew of bolted and trad lines. Overall, the climbing is easier than American Fork Canyon. Rock Canyon holds numerous bolted routes in the 5.5 to 5.13 range and trad from 5.6 to 5.12 with the balance easier than 5.10. There are routes sprinkled around on both sides of the canyon so it possible to chase the shade or the sun, as need demands. All of the parking is at the mouth of the canyon, so be prepared to hump. The rock is divided primarily between yellow and reddish quartzite closer to the mouth of the canyon, and gray limestone farther up canyon. Climbers are required to wear a helmet when climbing with the WMC. Please contact me if you are joining us and look on mountainproject for driving directions.
