The Scar is a beautiful cliff overlooking Moab, the Matheson Wetlands and the Colorado River. The routes here are all overhanging sport climbs. The wall catches morning sun and afternoon shade and there is often a slight breeze.
As Potash Road enters the Colorado River Canyon at what is commonly called The Portal, the Wingate Sandstone layer angles to road level. This is between 2.5 and 3 miles from the turn off onto Potash from US 191.
