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


Start roadside and work your way around. Top out where the jugs end. Don't use top of boulder for holds.


One of the southern most boulders. Looks like a mushroom.

A cool lookign boulder, but this problem is contrived and super low-ball. Some sit starts on the boulder make for challenging one-move wonders, but the only reason to climb this rock is that it looks funny.

It's possible to traverse around the whole boulder using the top lip. It's really fun, but tiring, so go fast.
