Original Meat Wall Rock Climbing
BETA PHOTO: Original Meat Wall. Park here, or, save yourself...
|RAIN AND WET ROCK The sandstone around Moab is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. MORE INFO >>>|
A beautifully varnished wall at Indian Creek with a dozen or so stellar crack lines. This wall is atypical of Indian Creek in that many of the lines fall in the 5.10 range. The sizes are mostly in the hands and wide hands ranges, but some smaller stuff does exist there. It is a good wall to climb during colder months, because it is south facing and gets good sun.
Refer to the 200 Select Indian Creek Climbs guidebook for an overview map. Locate the first dirt road on the right(gate) past the Disappointment Cliffs. High clearance is helpful on this road, but low clearance vehicles will just require more thought. You will pass a possible left turn and then come to a fork, at which point go left. The right fork leads to the 2nd Meat Wall approach. Go another half mile from the fork while looking up to your left for the wall. The climb Right Arm is easily visible from the dirt road as a leaning splitter with many pods. Park at an obvious small parking area on the right. Walk up the wash for 100 yards or so, looking for cairns marking the rugged trail to the cliff.

A few hundred yards to the left of Sinestra in a large, left-facing corner with thin seams on the left wall. Beautiful handjamming in a varnished corner. Enjoy the many face holds for your feet on the left wall, or just ignore them and motor up the crack. One 60m rope was just barely too short for the rappel. A 70m rope would be perfect.Great hands in a corner. Start by climbing on top of the broken pillar/ledge and then into great sustained hands in the corner with stemming and j...[more] Browse More Classics in UT

As of 10/8/14, a section of the road about a quarter of a mile past the gate was washed out, making it impassable to all but the bravest 4x4 drivers. Not sure of the condition of the rest of the road--we were short on time and opted to not park and hike in.
