Description

The cliffs right around the city of Moab contain a handful of towers and several high quality cragging areas. Most have approaches up long talus slopes or are accessed from 4WD roads behind the rim.
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

Getting There

The Moab Rim areas are widely scattered with completely different approaches.

Super Chimney is the big flake visible to the left (east & higher) than the Moab Rim Tower. (About half an hour up the Moab Rim Jeep Trail, chimney feature, on the uphill side). One set of cams gets you through, and a few draws for the pins higher up. Paul R. and Jimmie D. established this gem initiall as A2 and most of the same 5.10. After a superfun TR, Jimmie, Hellen and Billy R. removed the extra pitons and this now leads as one of the best single pitches on the river! Belay at the top. Pretty exciting at the top, but probably not R. Oct 16, 2005
