This is a nice slab close to town, but with a bit of an uphill hike. It faces Southwest and sits in a secluded, and sheltered area that is perfect for a sunny winter day. This is a route that would get done everyday if it were on Potash, but it's a relatively steep hike up for a single route. Note: This wall is located in the boundary's of Arches National Park, do not add any aditional fixed anchors. See comments below.
To get to the start of the hike drive North out of town on 191, after only .25 - .5 miles past the bridge, there is a pull off on the right, just past where Courthouse Wash comes down to 191. Park here and start a steep hike up to the East following a faint trail. After 5-10 min you will crest over a ridge, continue up and left (North/NE) toward a dark vanished rock in the back of a sort of dead end. The Slab is up and right of this.
Friction your way up over small holds, past 5, maybe 6 bolts. The route runs up the middle of a 40' wide, well featured, slab . Where the anchors are located you can top rope at least 4 different lines without sharing a hold....[more]Browse More Classics in UT
