Potash Wallstreet

Description 

Wingate sandstone with roadside (shoulder of the highway) belaying and excellent access from Moab with well over a hundred climbs from 5.4 TRs to 5.12, mixed sport and trad. Actually too many routes with some contrived sport routes in too small an area, but worth a visit. Gets morning to midday sun and in the warm season stays very hot until late in the afternoon. Be wary of descriptions in some guidebooks; anchors have disappeared from some climbs, so carry a selection of trad gear on climbs where you can't see them. Restrooms are available .3 miles N at Jaycee campground and .8 miles S of the Indian Writing sign at the south end of the climbing area.

This is a good area to get a feel for some of the climbing in the area, or if you only have limited time in the area. Expect it to always be crowded, even in full-sun summer conditions. Cool off and refill water later at the (potable) natural spring on the N side of River Road (turn E just south of the bridge on 191 as you head back to Moab, it's on the right in an obvious large paved pullout).


Getting There 

Drive north out of Moab on 191 and cross the bridge over the Colorado; continue 1.3 miles and make the left (south) turn onto Potash Road (279). The climbing areas start about 4.2 miles onto the road (at the 'Park in Designated Areas Only' sign). General parking is in turnouts on both sides of the road for the next mile or so, generally under the climbs themselves. Use caution as 4x4s and trucks generally ignore the 30mph speed limit in the area, and tourists gawk and don't watch the road as they go past. I personally wear a road guard vest while belaying to alert people that I'm not potential target.

Astro Lad 5.11a 6c 22 VII+ E3 5c  UT : Moab Area : ... : Wall Street
Astro Lad is the proud thin crack a few routes to the right of Bad Moki Roof. It is obvious when you see 2 bolts halfway up and a bunch of chalk on the other side of the right facing dihedral. Start with finger locks and liebacking to a good rest and clip 2 bolts to the jamming crux. Sustanined climbing makes this one a battle to the end....[more]   Browse More Classics in UT

I saw a nice splitter that went right through the petroglyphs. It didn't have chalk on it but it did have an anchor above it. It looked incredible. Anyone know what it is?

Climbing near petroglyphs or pictographs seriously threatens climbing access anywhere.

Hey John.
A lot of those routes got put up before the mandate on petroglyphs was issued. The rule is now closer than 50 feet, I believe. We would be wise to heed it.

The description says Wingate but this is definitely the softer Navajo sandstone.

Is anyone familiar with WhiteWay(5.11) or the WhiteWay Varaition(5.6)?? According to the Desert Rock Guidebook I believe it is just left of Potstash on the other side of the cottonwood tree.

Mr. L: I read a blurb in that book about the 5.6 variation off to the left. I don't think it exists.

Are there any routes here that extend to the top of the wall? Seems like a shame if there's not since it looks like great rock for another 200+ feet above most anchors here...

The rock looks good but it deteriorates a lot. The best stuff is at the bottom.

Years ago Nathan Martin and I climbed to the rim starting with the route Pin Head. I highly recommend against climbing routes to the rim! The rock quality ranged from really bad to vertical sand, and with the potential of bombing somebody below.

Left some Ray Bans somewhere at the base of wall street. If anyone has seen them the owner would be extremely happy to have them back. Thanks

Administrators: Is it possible to put all of these routes on Wall Street in order from one side to another? This is done for other areas on MP. It is still confusing to try to find routes. Thanks!
