Reservoir Ridge, Big Cottonwood Canyon, UT
What to Expect: My husband and I explored this location last week and decided we must take the kids back! It is a simple and short approach on flat ground from the parking lot to the climbing. Nice flat area for the kids to play and simple 5.4 - 5.7 routes for them to enjoy. There is a bolted anchor 15 ft up one of the routes - hotly contested by many locals and used by outdoor eduction teams for classes - but I say it is great for belaying my younger kids off of!
The down side? No harder routes for Mom and Dad. But great for beginners and kids!
