Two different sections of Zion National Park are the Kolob Canyons and Kolob Terrace. There are some great hikes, canyons and mountain to climb in the Kolob parts of the park. The Kolob Canyons area is just off Highway 15, between St. George and Cedar City and the Kolob Terrace turn-off is in the small town of Virgin located 12 miles from the south entrance to the park.

Kolob is one of my favorite areas and this is a nice album. I found some rappel chains at the top of a scramble once on a prominent notch. The notch is just left (if your looking from the road) of a massive vertical crack. Someone told me it might be called the Icebox, and I think if you rappel it it might take you close to the Kolob Arch. Sound familiar?

I added a so-so quality picture of what I was talking about:

It does! I love Icebox Canyon. It's one of my favorite. The start is something else, but you do end at Kolob Arch. I got stung by a scorpion there the day we did that one. That's a beautiful photo from Kolob. I love the deep rich colors there.

Here are a couple of photos that I have on sp for Icebox - they are the rappels to drop into the canyon.

You are welcome. :)

Yes, Bo writes the canyon descriptions on that side. He is good at what he does.
