Scorched Earth Crag Rock Climbing
|RAIN AND WET ROCK The sandstone around Moab is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. MORE INFO >>>|
A good cooler weather crag that sees little traffic. Lots of potential for first ascents of an eclectic style on highly featured B-grade wingate. The wall faces south-east/south and gives excellent views of the Kane Creek Valley.
Drive down Kane Creek just past the Ice Cream Parlor, park at the cattle guard at a sign indicating that you're leaving Colorado Parkway Rec. Area. Cross the creek and follow a shallow drainage that forms a break in the chinle slope on the right. Two short cracks are encountered on the wingate walls you'll access immediately above the drainage, the right route being Creeker and the left Dante.
Climbing Season For the Kane Springs Canyon area.
