About Little Cottonwood Canyon:

A canyon with TONS of climbs. The approaches are a little long for the longer routes, but most of the favorite short ones are closer. The climbs range from 5.7's to 5.13's. And everything from long multi-pitch Trad Routes, short Sport Routes, to lots of Bouldering.

Beautiful campgrounds also.

Nearest town or city: Salt Lake City
Directions: The easiest way to get to the canyon is to follow the signs that direct you to Alta and Snowbird ski resorts. The majority of the climbing is concentrated in the bottom half of the canyon, on mostly large granite buttresses. Most of the bouldering is close to the road.

A map with driving directions can be found here.
