Description 

The Power Wall has a good concentration of shortish routes (we never moved our packs, an IC first); the best are in the 11+-5.12 range and require smaller gear. Warm up on a couple of easy hand/big hand cracks, check out the 140' 5.10 Flower Power dihedral, and then get ready to crank. Power Line (5.12) is the obvious 1" splitter, slightly overhanging; this may be TR'ed via a 5.11 stem/LB to its right. Thin cracks to the right are 5.12 and take a bunch of TCUs, or swing over from the warmup and toprope it. A widening corner on the left end, off a ledge, is 5.10.

Exposure is west. Bring two ropes to climb Flower Power (fun, worthwhile), or one if you just want to climb the shorter stuff.

Getting There 

Approach by parking as for Scarface and walking up an old road across (east) the drainage from Scarface; the Power Wall is the buttress at the back of the canyon. Head for a dirt cone with a cubical boulder and a rutted road on it.

Unknown OW splitter R of electric 5.11 6c+ 23 VIII- 23 E4 5c  UT : Moab Area : ... : Power Wall
This unknown OW should be on the list of "must do" wide cracks in the creek! super splitter on black rock with crisp edges. my knee fit great most of the way. there is a small bulge 1/3 of the way up. the cruxes are the slight flare down low and when it pinches down to old 4 camalots up high. ends with hands and fingers! Awesome! ...[more]   Browse More Classics in UT
