Maple Canyon Adopt-a-Crag this weekend

The Access Fund is partnering with the Salt Lake Climber’s Alliance and Forest Service this weekend, on Saturday, May 3, 2014, for the Adopt-a-Crag event at Maple Canyon located seven miles northwest of Moroni in Utah. Volunteers will be working to improve conditions at one of the nation’s most unique rock climbing areas.

Improvement to camp sites in the lower canyon will be worked on as well as delineating day use only parking. Trails that were damaged from last year’s flooding will also get some TLC. With more and more climbers wanting to experience the distinctive characteristics of Maple Canyon, more help is needed to limit climbing impact.

If you haven’t been to Maple Canyon, this is definitely a climbing area you need to put on your “places-to-climb” list. The imbedded cobblestone cliffs are unusual and the walls literally look like someone took cobblestones and piled them on top of each other. The climbing experience is different and very enjoyable once you get accustomed to the stone.

The Adopt-a-Crag event will be a great way to get familiar with the Maple Canyon area and help keep climbing access open by taking care of this beautiful area. Start time will be at 10:00 a.m. in the School Room parking area and go until about 3:00 p.m. Register on the SLCA Web site and come prepared to work hard. Please leave the dog friends at home this time around.
