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.

This route lies about 100 feet to the left of where the approach trail hits the wall. Look for the obvious pods in the crack, Right Arm which lies just to the right of Sinestra. Starts off a pedestal in a short offwidth. This route is a real journey with sustained hand/wide-hands jamming for a full rope length. Throw in an improbable, intricate face traverse and a finishing body length roof split by a perfect handcrack and you have an ultimate crack line.

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.
