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


Lizard Rock is the 60 foot spire near the parking lot, and is also known as Entrance Rock. The standard route climbs the face nearest the parking lot, and another route exists just to its left. Good free climbing for the Fishers.

Getting There 

It should be pretty obvious from the parking lot...

Leapin' Lizards 5.10- 6a 18 VI+ 18 E1 5a UT : Moab Area : ... : Lizard Rock
Follow the thin hands-to-finger crack on the left side of the face. The initial crack yields a medium nut placement if you need it. When the crack runs out, do cool face climbing moves on edges and cobbles to a bolt. From here, move up and right to join the standard route at the obvious flake at the start of the summit overhang. Sling the horn with a long runner, then climb jugs up the overhang to the summit mantel and a good belay.Very good rock for the Fishers!...[more]   Browse More Classics in UT

Easy to get to, straightforward climbing, and FUN!

After climbing this you will discover the whole thing leans quite a bit. It leans away from you as you approach, so you may not notice this until you reach the top. Looks like next big rainstorm and the thing is history ... or it could last 1000 more years.
