Mount Olympus's routes aren't too tough, but they are often very long. One route can take all day and the protection is pretty thin. Mount Olympus is simply a good lot of rock. The West Slabs are the most popular route as a broad slab that can be climbed anywhere and with a thousand variations. And then there's the view. Glance over your shoulder and there's Salt Lake City.
For those who enjoy a good bouldering problem, there's the City Rock Area, a group of quartzite rocks with a range of problems, easy to not-so-easy at all.
