Description

"Cobble climbing"—Maple Canyon is conglomerate rock with embedded, rounded clasts ranging in size from pebbles to boulders.

The walls have a wide range of holds from bombers to slopers, making the climbing unique and challenging. Mostly sport climbing with a very little trad.

Nearest beer is in Nephi.

Access issues

Box Canyon is on private land. Be respectful and do NOT shit in the canyon.

Approach

Exit 225 on I-I5 (Nephi 100 N exit). East on UT Route 132 to Fountain Green. Right on 400 South. Six miles to Freedom Road, turn right. Right again on Maple Canyon Road. Follow the paved road to the dirt.

Where to stay
