rock climb - the hinterlands
This will be an adventurous and exploratory hike and climb in a new area just north of Rock Canyon and above Provo. Mountain Project describes the area as, "About 800 feet above the Utah Valley, and just north of Rock Canyon, the Hinterlands is great late fall, winter, or early spring area for sport climbers. With over 50 routes, these limestone walls face due south and west. Even during times of inversion, this area sits just above the smog line, making it a nice getaway. The routes range from 5.4 to 5.13+. With a 30 minute hike, it is an nice, quiet place to get away and still be close to the city." Getting there is described as, "Drive toward Rock Canyon. At the four way stop above the Provo Temple, go north onto 1200 East. Continue on 1200 East for 0.8 miles. At the t-intersection, turn right into a cul-de-sac (Piute Drive). There will be a dirt road going up to the shoreline trail. Either drive up the road or park here. Walk or drive up the road for about 150 yards then head back south. At the top of the hill, look for the trail heading up the mountain. It starts out as an old deer trail and then gets better. Approach is 20-30 minutes." We will use GPS (40.274873, -111.628143) and beta images to locate the crag in addition to the approach described on Mountain Project. All participants are required to bring a helmet.
