Dogwood Crag

BIG COTTONWOOD CANYON

Dogwood is covered with fossilized sea floor, carboniferous rock and wind-eroded quartzite. It is also one of the more popular climbing crags for the novice. The most common climbers are young males teaching young females how to climb, among other things.

The forest service charges $2.00 to enter the area, I think it's to help pay for the irrelevant fences and camouflage metal nets that cover the ground.

Everything was going great until this giant boulder fell on Lorin
