Progress On Dinoland Adventure Project’s “Flag Crag”

by | Jul 10, 2024 | News | 0 comments

The developing “Flag Crag” rock climbing area across from Remember the Maine Park continues to progress. The Dinoland Adventure Project (DAP) team kicked off the project with a route development training with the Salt Lake Climbers Alliance at the end of May. Four sport climbing routes have been bolted so far, ranging in level of difficulty from 5.8 to 5.10+, with names like “Independence Arch” and “Lieutenant Friend,” after one of the officers who died in the sinking of the U.S.S. Maine. At least 6 additional routes have been identified for development this year, with the potential for more. With their dedicated team members and several volunteers, including the Dino Trails Committee, DAP has also established access points to the cliff near both entrances to Remember the Maine Park. They are currently working on reinforcing the trail with donated railroad ties; establishing a third, central access point; and connecting them all with a trail along the base of the cliff, to keep climbers away from the road. “The road has been a big concern,” shares DAP Executive Director Amber Toler, “but we’ve been working with Uintah County and USSD1 to create a solution that will keep climbers and drivers safe.” Experienced climbers are welcome to climb the new routes but are asked to stay on the existing trail, climb in the afternoon to stay out of the heat, and wear your helmet.
