What You Should Know

Ferguson Canyon is located right south of Big Cottonwood Canyon and has limited parking.


The Watchtower Buttressthree-and-a-half-cheerios

An awesome area for you to climb where your kids can enjoy fun in water.

The Cathedralthree-and-a-half-cheerios

Another great area super close to the Watch Tower and very similar.

Goldfingers Wall three-cheerios

About 200 feet up canyon from the Cathedral (so your looking at a 30 minute + approach which is not ideal with kiddos). It has a pretty flat landing and no water.

Tower of Babel

The approach is a steep gulch with lots of rock that would be really difficult with young kids.

Animation, Punck Rock, The Cove, Gallant Wall, Duomo Wall, and Grayo. 

Not easily accessible. Steep, major scrambling and slick.

Eldorado and Space Station

Some major scrambling and steep hill.
