This is a big spread out area basically encompassing everything along the River Road north of Moab. The climbing is very diverse, including everything from nailups on towers, one pitch cragging, and even one of Moab's most popular bouldering areas.
Approaches range from 1 minute strolls from the car to 1 hour uphill bushwhacks through loose rock. There is a ton of new route potential here - there are at least 10 unclimbed lines for every established route.
All of River Road between Moab and the Dewey Bridge has climbing. Most of the time you just park in a pullout along the road.

The obvious one in the middle (a 6-8" horror) is Dolomite Wall, and the rightmost one is Infrared.P1: Begin in the first crack system left of the corner formed by Big Bend Butte and Dolomite Spire. It is a stemming slot up broken rock and roofs to a wide-hands crack. Belay at bolts. 5.10.P2: Two ways to ...[more] Browse More Classics in UT
