RAIN AND WET ROCK The sandstone around Moab is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. MORE INFO >>>


The Public Service Wall is on the backside of the Fin Wall. It is a long wall with lots of forgotten gems. It was really popular in the 1990's, but then seemed to fall into obscurity.

Getting There 

This wall is 9 miles past Newspaper Rock. The best way to access the wall is to park at the Fin Wall, hike to the base of the cliffs and then walk around the buttress to the back side of the Fin Wall.

Trail is kinda tough to find and follow. The one we took hit the wall about at the unnamed 5.10. Most of the routes are further right. Gets shade in the AM but sun later in the day.
