Description 

The Little Valley, as it is defined here, is a hanging valley above US-191 about 7 miles north of Moab. You pass though it when on the Gemini Bridges Trail. The rock here, and in its side canyons, is Wingate. However, the cap rock that protects the Wingate from erosion is mostly gone, so it's not as solid as we like our Wingate...more like Navajo...or even Entrada.

Getting There 

Drive 8 miles north of Moab on 191. Hang a left onto the Gemini Bridges Road. It's rough and dusty. Sometimes a 2WD can do it, but often the road requires clearance. Follow the Gemini Bridges Rd. for a couple of miles uphill until it empties into a "little valley." Bride Canyon is a side canyon in the valley.

Babylon Rave 5.4 4a 12 IV 10 VD 3c C2+  UT : Moab Area : ... : Shabazz Palace
This is a striking path that ascends the SE face of the Shabazz Palace. The route essentially follows three cracks which open and shut; when one crack closes another opens up allowing further progress. Some soft rock is encountered but for the most part the rock is pretty good. There are several roofs and the entire route overhangs 30 feet.P1: Ascend the crack system through some soft rock passing a short roof, above the crack pinches shut- I hammered two pins here but subsequent ascen...[more]   Browse More Classics in UT
