Tired of the crowds at Indian Creek? Then march your way up the quadruple-sized talus cone to Suburbia! Left again from The Wall, Suburbia (AKA A Long Way From Suburbia) is OUT THERE!

Just hiked the cliff. Not too many "Holy shit, look at that!" type routes accept for Killer, a long 5.12 splitter/offset. Bloom's new edition catalogs everything that I saw pretty well.

Probably 5 or 6 obvious routes left to do. The newer routes all have steel anchors. It would be nice to continue that trend.

Getting There 

I approached via the NW edge of the talus but this is not recommended.

Seems like the best approach is to park at The Wall parking and start walking to Suburbia, and keep walking...and walking. The first route (A Long Way From Suburbia, 5.10) is near the corner of the wall where it turns from West facing to a more Southern aspect. The approach (no trail) should put you near this route when you hit the wall. Take a left for everything else.

Blooms new edition has an approach described direct from the west marked by a cairn that I never saw.

Jake starting up Killer!

Killer 5.12a 7a+ 25 VIII+ 25 E5 6a  UT : Moab Area : ... : Suburbia
Killer starts with all sizes of fingers in a beautiful wavey left facing offset. After about 60' climb into a big pod/chimney for a nice rest and then continue up more offset fingers to a tricky move getting onto a ledge. A short right facing corner leads to another left facing offset and the anchors....[more]   Browse More Classics in UT
