2nd Meat Wall Rock Climbing
View from the base of 2nd Meat Wall
|RAIN AND WET ROCK The sandstone around Moab is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. MORE INFO >>>|
This was once an obscure Indian Creek crag, but has now become quite popular due to an abundance of shady routes that are great for hot weather. Marco's I.C. guide is useful for getting oriented, but there are lots of newer routes, especially around the north side, that are not in his guide.
Heading west on the highway, drive west past Cat Wall, Broken Tooth, and Fin Wall. After a few miles look for a gated dirt road that leads to 2nd Meat, Tenderloins, Original Meat, and Sacred Cow Walls. The road is poor, but my Corolla makes it to the parking area for 2nd Meat (but not Original Meat). These days there is a pretty good trail that deposits you at the base of T-Bones Tonight and Tube Steaks Tomorrow.

Two pitch route way left on the dark side of the wall. Face climb into tips splitter 5.12. Then an arching second pitch 5.13+. Perhaps Indian Creek's hardest established line.The first pitch is a good route in its own right. The gear placed before stepping into the splitter seems a little hollow, but you will get a good stance after stepping in to place a more inspiring cam before the burl begins. 30m.Mason Earle on the 2nd pitch "The marathon pitch culminates with a wicked left-leaning, narrowi...[more] Browse More Classics in UT

Hey does anyone know what the routes are to the right of cube steaks? there's a varied corner that is fairly thin, i think in the book it's 10- and then there are 2 others a bit further down, one i think is splitter fingers and the other goes up a ramp and runs from .5's to good hands with a #5 pod at the top and has a 2nd 11+ pitch that's thin through a roof.

As of 10/8/14, a section of the road about a quarter of a mile past the gate was washed out, making it impassable to all but the bravest 4x4 drivers. Not sure of the condition of the rest of the road--we were short on time and opted to not park and hike in.
