Location: Approximately 3 miles up Big Cottonwood Canyon. Look for Storm Mountain Picnic area, pass it and continue on till the road goes over the river. There will be a chain link fence on the left and immediately after, a black shale parking lot. Park there. Head south towards the fence, go around and follow the trail along the river towards the dam. At the dam take a right and follow the trail to the rocks.
What to Expect: My husband and I explored this location last week and decided we must take the kids back! It is a simple and short approach on flat ground from the parking lot to the climbing. Nice flat area for the kids to play and simple 5.4 – 5.7 routes for them to enjoy. There is a bolted anchor 15 ft up one of the routes – hotly contested by many locals and used by outdoor eduction teams for classes – but I say it is great for belaying my younger kids off of!
The down side? No harder routes for Mom and Dad. But great for beginners and kids!
