About Rock Canyon:

This canyon was the training ground for some of the early mutants of the utah area. The old school quartzite sport and trad routes lent these early pioneers a place to put their energies before they were developing surrounding areas such as american fork, the virgin river gorge and maple canyon. Subsequently, the canyon opens up to some of the finest limestone in the state. Rock canyon has everything from classic 5.10's and 11's, to some of the hardest routes in the area still yet to be repeated. You won't find beta spewing groupies at these secluded crags. Just neverending projects in an impeccable setting.
