Wasatch Bench Rock Climbing

by Tony Calderone

Mountain Dreamer

Salt Lake Valley climbers have some of the most easily accessible rock climbs of any metropolitan area in the entire country. Big Cottonwood Canyon, Little Cottonwood Canyon and three wilderness areas immediately east of Salt Lake Valley have over 2,400 developed rock climbing routes that are described in other guidebooks in this series.

This is a guide to rock climbing in the hills and smaller canyons along the central Wasatch Bench, immediately east of Salt Lake Valley. The 175 routes described herein are typically short and have short approaches. Most can easily be climbed after work and before the sun sets. And most of these areas are conducive to bringing along small children and/or dogs.
