Climbing and Bouldering Routes | St. George

Here are a few places we have found to be some of the most enjoyable routes around the St. George area. Ranging from 5.4a routes to 5.13b. Whether or not you are just starting out or are experienced, there are the perfect routes for everyone.

Bouldering at Dixie Rock!

We may work hard in the office, but we also play hard too! One of my favorite things to do with my girls is to go Bouldering up at Dixie Rock in pioneer Park! They have some great routes for you and the kids! The scenery and historical sites around make going up there a treat every time!

Location: Red Hills Parkway, St. George, UT 84770

Climbing in Snow Canyon

This large state park boasts a little of everything, from short sport clip-ups to mixed multi-pitch routes or even long, infrequently traveled adventure climbs. I have only sampled the area, but I am writing it up here to get the ball rolling. The crags are sandstone, some reminiscent of the good stuff at Red Rock, NV, some resembling the softer formations of Zion National Park, and some fit for climbing by only the truest of desert rats. No matter if you are chasing sun or shade, or wanting crimpers, slopers, pockets, or an occasional crack there are climbs of various flavors facing in any given direction at any given time of day, depending on which crag you are at. The Island In The Sky area sports the Aftershock Wall, Circus Wall, The Doghouse, and other walls with good sport and mixed climbs. The West Canyon area has adventure routes and much adventure potential for those looking for trouble and in possession of an emergency bolt kit. The nearby town of Saint George has plenty of services and hotels as well as nearby `improved camping` at Snow Canyon State Park ($14 in addition to $5 daily entry fee) or free camping just outside town on BLM land.
