This is the first comprehensive guidebook ever written for the northern Wasatch Front. The Ogden area's rich history of climbing combined with a recent explosion of new route activity is certain to put Ogden on the map. This book includes several areas never before documented, dozens of new routes, and all the classics. The variety of climbing has something for every climber from the alpine rock climbs of the Willard Spires, easy access sport routes and toproping at 9th Street, hard limestone test pieces at Causey, long traditional routes on the Macabre Wall, superb bouldering in St. Joe's boulder field, Maple Canyon-like cobble climbing in Echo Canyon, and the alluring combination of sport and trad routes overlooking Ogden city on the Schoolroom Wall.
