What can ya say...It's a large dry, hard river bottom. Land were ever you want. Flat as can be. An American flag and wind sock can be found on the "island". Planned on staying the night but thought the area was a little dull for us. Mexican Mountain was just to the east...great idea!
Ibex Climbing AreaAdded by Brent Rowser 5 months ago
This is mostly a bouldering area with a few mixed gear, trad and sport routes. This place is epically eerie and seated at the end of a dry desert lake out in the middle of the desert in southern Utah. The boulders are monstrous red quartzite behemoths and since it all sits next to a dead lake it magnifies the feeling of how beautifully desolate and remote this area is. Besides the dead lake the rocks themselves give you an eerie feeling. Some of them are even hollow, completely solid, but they still ring like a bass drum when you bang on them. This is a five star bouldering area if you like to go high. https://www.mountainproject.com/area/105916340/ibex
