|This crag could be candidate for the "crag with the best view in the world" award. Simply stunning.|

Fully agreed with Andy on this one. The view from ths crag is the better than any view from anywhere in Indian Creek in my opinion. the climing is very good too. Go check it out!
For the drive, it's maybe 10 minutes past the routes on potash. There is a huge pullout, keep going. You will see a train track parallel the road. Keep going. Jug Handle Arch, turn right follow the dirt road (which has been improved since last year).

|There is a sign stating "no permitted climbing activities from April 1 through August 15". I had not been aware of a closure. Does anyone have the beta?|

Your Question: Is there a closure of Maverick Buttress in Long Canyon off Potash Road in effect?
BLM Answer: Maverick Buttress is denied to commercial climbing because it is in the heart of desert bighorn sheep country (as you may know, it is right next to an important bighorn sheep watering location).
While the Buttress is not closed to private climbing, we do ask private climbers to choose another climb during the lambing season (April 15 through June 15). I must reiterate that this is merely a request -- it is not a closure.
Please let me know if you have further questions,
