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 climbing park offers much cooler temps, which allows you to climb all day, even on hot days in the desert. This is because our intimate canyon offers loads of shade and always has a cool breeze off the Santa Clara River.

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. Climbing routes range in difficulty from 5.6 to 5.13 so there’s something for all ages and skill levels.

You’ll find brass plaques at the base of each climb, with the name and rating of each climb. We’ve had rock climbers from more than 25 different countries climb our canyon walls here in Veyo!

Add rock climbing to your family reunion, company party, or private event! Ask about group discounts.

Make sure to read the following:

  • All of our visitors must sign a liability waiver. You can do this at the canyon or do it right here online: Sign waiver now!
  • ALL climbers MUST sign in at the front desk – No exceptions! 
  • Climbers under 18 must have parent present to sign waiver or will not be allowed to climb

A free map of our climbing areas and a list of climbs can be found at our front desk. We also have a local guide book available for use. All Rock Climbing and bolts are managed by Southern Utah Climbing Coalition (SUCC).

Rock Climbing Pricing

Name Price
Add All-Day Rock Climbing Access Add $8.50

This rock climbing fee is in addition to our general Canyon Access Pass, and is required in order to cover the high cost of additional insurance we are required to carry because we allow rock climbing.

All climbers must also pay for our Canyon Access Pass for each day spent in the canyon ($9.50 for 14 and up/$7.50 for under 14). This pass offers all-day access into the canyon and includes these fun activities: Swimming, Crawdad Catching, Hiking, Picnicking, Pickle Ball, Volley Ball and Basketball.

IMPORTANT: Each individual visiting Veyo Pool and Crawdad Canyon is required to sign a Liability Form or they won’t be allowed to enter the property. Save yourself time and sign our waiver ahead of time.

PLEASE NOTE: No animals, including dogs, may be brought into the Canyon, with the exception of ADA Service Animals. Please see the ADA FAQ for details on what qualifies as a service animal. Note that “The ADA makes a distinction between psychiatric service animals and emotional support animals… if [a] dog’s mere presence provides comfort, that would not be considered a service animal under the ADA” and would not be permitted on the premise.


All Guests Must Sign our Access Waiver!
