Access Issue: RAIN, WET ROCK and RAPTOR CLOSURES: The sandstone around Moab is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. Also please ask and be aware of Raptor Closures in areas such as CAT WALL and RESERVOIR WALL in Indian Creek Details

Description

This is a big spread out area basically encompassing everything along the River Road north of Moab. The climbing is very diverse, including everything from nailups on towers, one pitch cragging, and even one of Moab's most popular bouldering areas.

Approaches range from 1 minute strolls from the car to 1 hour uphill bushwhacks through loose rock. There is a ton of new route potential here - there are at least 10 unclimbed lines for every established route.

Getting There

All of River Road between Moab and the Dewey Bridge has climbing. Most of the time you just park in a pullout along the road.
