What You Should Know

We only recently moved to Sandy, so we haven’t explored Little Cottonwood Canyon as much as we would have liked. There is awesome bouldering at the beginning of the canyon which we have found is a great activity for kids. Its easy to do with them because you don’t have two parents attached to a rope and it can be fun to find easier routes for them too. Anyways, we have only one area that we highly recommend for climbing with kids in the canyon.
