High altitude granite bouldering close to Salt Lake. When it's in the 90s down in the valley, it's in the 70s up here. The rock varies in quality, but there is a lot of it.
If you want to avoid the pretty but endless trail from Alpine, drive through AF canyon following signs for Granite Flats campground. Above Granite Flats, and before Silver Lake Flat, is a trailhead for Dry Creek. Walk up this (2 hrs of switchbacks) to the saddle just north of Box Elder Peak. Straight north is a huge bowl of granite, the Abbey. Head across the slabs and soon you will be at the meadow boulders. Another 500 feet higher on the east side, past the slide of big boulders, is the first large concentration of quality. Nice camping up here. North is the cirque, a great zone, or check out the massive boulders on the upper west side. Even better, cross over the western ridge and explore the monster spill. Or turn around when you realize you'd rather go climb the House boulder.
