A great area with a fairly good selection of climbs, with most residing in the 5.11 range. Since it faces due south it gets good sun all day long and is climbable on all but the coldest days - which also means a miserable experience if you go up there when it's hot. While up there, you'll experience some of the best views in the region.
Continue past the Supercrack area for several miles on 211 as it winds its way along the cliffs. The large parking area can be found on the left side of the road just after a sharp left curve that goes into a long straightaway. The lot is several hundred yards before a fence and cattle guard, about a half mile before the reservoir, and a mile or so before the Beef Basin road junction.

Featured Route For Scarface
Torque Wrench 5.11 6c+ 23 VIII- 23 E4 5c UT : Moab Area : ... : Scarface
Go right from where the approach trail hits the wall for a few hundred feet. This route is just left of the 5.13 corner called Death of a Cowboy (plaque). The letters TW are painted at the route's base. A long strenuous handcrack which takes some thought to negociate the crux which pulls past/over a huge chockstone. Don't get tunnel vision at this intimidating section. The majority of the route is great hands. Enjoy it!...[more] Browse More Classics in UT
