The Box Recreation Area contains 320 acres of BLM land, primarily used for technical rock climbing and bouldering. The area is highly scenic and provides recreation opportunities throughout the year. The five cliffs on either side of this box canyon provide popular rock climbing for even highly-skilled technical climbers. With challenges like the Waterfall Wall, Corner Block and the Fillet a Papillon Wall, the piton-packing set should be drooling. Climbing, hiking.
