About Welcome Springs:

Welcome Springs area crags(11.6 miles from Gunlock turn). A remote limestone climbing area on the western slopes of the Beaver Dam Mountains west of St. George, Utah. The Cathedral is a special place to climb with deep shade all year long and a quiet desert mountain atmosphere and incredible limestone rock. There has been new route development this past year by Todd Perkins, especially on the Wailing & Sumo Walls but also in the Cathedral. Any serious sport climber and one who enjoys stout climbing on unpolished limestone ought to check this place out.

Directions: Take highway 91 south towards Mesquite, NV. Turn at desired milage. High clearance or four wheel drive vehicles recommended. Recent flash flooding has washed out the road. Even with 4WD you can only get within a mile of the crags.
