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

Parriot Mesa is the large mesa at the entrance of Castle Valley. It basically sits at the corner of River Road and the road into Castle Valley. Parriot has a fair number of crack climbs and an easy 5th class scramble to the summit, but sees little traffic. It also includes
Crooked Arrow Spire, which is an attractive semi-attached spire, visible on the NW corner of the mesa. The rock is excellent and there is a lot of potential for new routes.

Getting There

Approaches depend on the route you're climbing. For Crooked Arrow Spire and the Supernatural area, follow the high-clearance dirt road into Sister Superior (departs from River Road just north of the road into Castle Valley near a bridge). Stop before reaching Sister Superior near a huge, obvious boulder on the south side of the road. Follow a seldom-travelled trail directly past this boulder and up a ridge towards the north face of the mesa. Allow an hour for the slog. Other areas (Ascended Yoga Masters, etc) are approached differently.
