About Big Cottonwood Canyon:

Super hard quartzite,set in a v-shaped canyon with a perrenial stream in its bottom,yes there are some trout to be had as well!The climbs range from hardman to E-Z,most are single pitch with a few that are longer. Route development is still a possibility but are getting further from the road. Bring plenty of bits if that is your intent as the rock is as hard as a politicians head!
Nearest town or city: Salt Lake City
Directions: Get to S.L.C., and follow signs posted on all freeways to Brighton and Solitudes ski resorts, the climbs begin as soon as you enter the canyon!
