A fun airy rappel off Looking Glass Rock!

Description 

the road less traveled. there is an amazing amount of absolutely stellar climbing south of moab. conditions run the gamut. wilson and looking glass can be a spectacle but seclusion is the norm.

Getting There 

this area starts where the moab rim ends south of moab and spanish valley and ends at the turn off to indian creek (which is an area in itself). heading south from moab there's a hill that climbs you out of the valley and drops down to a rest stop (where seraph is). 191 continues south with many side canyons and roads.
