Warm South facing cliffs with a quick 1 km, flat access. As long as there's not a lot of snow, the cliffs are generally warm enough to climb. I've climbed here almost every month of the year at some point.

A good assortment of routes in this area. Great for beginners, having many easy top rope walls (mostly 5.4-5.7). Some good climbing over 5.10 as well, the hardest being 5.11d (?). Most routes can be done with a 50 m rope. Plenty of great trad routes here.

The military used to train here and the slabs are known by the letters painted onto the rock, as in D slab, F slab etc. According to my copy of the guidebook, since 2001 TABVAR has been retrofitting some routes to make more options for lead climbers.

Wear a helmet. Watch out for rock fall when the wind picks up. This place is a wind tunnel.

Directions:

Turn south onto HWY 40 off of HWY 1, turn at the sign for Wasootch. Hike from the parking lot. You will reach A-Slab within 5-10 min.
