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

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.

Queen's View- Standard Route 5.8 5b 16 VI- 15 HVS 4c A2- PG13  UT : Moab Area : ... : Joe Wilson Canyon
This starts on the side away from Tranquility Tower, the east face. It begins up the left side of a slab. Pitch 1- Climb up past a pin, then to a large ledge with fixed pins. Don't expect much gear on this pitch,. but it is rather easy.Pitch 2- begin up pins to an incipient seam. We nailed, and later constructively scarred two baby angles placement on this pitch.
