Description 

A large area bordered by Kane Creek to the north, Lockhart Basin to the west, Hwy 191 to the east and Hart's Draw to the south. The plateau is split by a beautiful remote canyon, Hatch Wash in which a small number of routes have been established, due to it's relative remoteness and difficult accessibility.

Getting There 

Take Hwy 191 south from Moab, exit at either Looking glass road or further south on the Canyon Rims Recreation Area exit.
