RAIN AND WET ROCK The sandstone around Moab is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. MORE INFO >>>


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.

Somebody call a doctor, cuz i got a bad case of Boogie Fever. super fun route. nice little pocket down and right to pro up for the belayer. looks run to the first bolt but is not. it's possible to get three pieces below it. a tiny (not obvious from the deck) piece protects the crux move below the bolt. another "hidden" tiny piece protects the second crux move above (the step into the corner) then it's cake to the top. possible to rap down right to set top rope on routes to the right.
