Convoy Wall Rock Climbing
Mark Tjaden working some free moves on Dirty Today...
|RAIN AND WET ROCK The sandstone around Moab is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. MORE INFO >>>|
Convoy Wall is a 200 foot high South facing wall that has all different types of climbing and is filled with first accent possibilities. This wall is a little dirty in places but for the seasoned desert climber it holds many great lines.
At the Merrimac/Monitor sign branch right up the wash for about 1/4 mile. At this point there will be a dirt track that breaks right up a steep hill towards the south side of the canyon. Follow this for about 200 yards until you hit the wall. At this point walk West for another 200 yards, on the right you see a detached pillar about 60 feet high. At this point you should be able to look across the canyon at the Putterman formations. The right side of the pillar is "Rubber Duck", the first line on the wall when coming from the East.

Featured Route For Convoy Wall
Merge (Let Me IN!) 5.10 6b 20 VII- 19 E2 5b UT
: Moab Area
: ... : Convoy Wall
Merge is the crack on the left side of the detached pillar, starting about 15 feet up above a ramp. Scramble up the low angle and get right to the base of a 4 to 6 inch off-width (left Facing). The name says it all, you can't get in the thing like you want to until you are 3 feet from the anchor, makes it quite interesting. Lay it back and go for it, the edge is pretty round and the feet are sparse, good luck. ...[more] Browse More Classics in UT
