Rock Climbing in Saint George

The only Private Outdoor Rock Climbing Park in Southern Utah

Crawdad Canyon is one of the only, privately owned, outdoor rock climbing parks in the USA. Our unique canyon climbing park offers loads of shade and cooler weather from the stream below. The canyon runs east to west so there’s always a few climbing routes in the shade during the summer. Located in Southern Utah just minutes from St George, we have over 250 bolted climbing routes in solid basalt walls, scaling up to 85 feet high. Route ratings range from 5.6 to 5.13. You’ll find brass plaques at the base of each climb, with the name and rating of each climb. With hundreds of climbing routes and a variety of ratings, you can spend all day rock climbing near Saint George. We’ve had rock climbers from more than 25 different countries come visit us in Southern Utah. After you are done climbing you can cool off in one of the best swimming pools in the Saint George area, all included with your climbing day pass.
