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

The Shipyard is a good crag near the entrance of Long Canyon. The area consists of a number of fine crack lines in the 5.10-5.12 range on excellent Wingate sandstone. This crag sits at the north end of a steep draw, the first side canyon on the right, and receives direct sunshine for most of the day. This is not a good option on hot days. The cliffs in this area are over 400' tall but currently very few routes exceed one pitch in length. Most routes have sandstone plaques at the base. Good routes include: Nina 10d, Electronic Battleship 10c, and Proudest Monkey a 3-pitch 12b.

Getting There

Drive West up Long Canyon Road from Potash Road. Park at a pullout at the first campsite on the right side of the road. Hike past the campsite and continue up the sandy draw on a faint cairn marked path. Cut northeast out of the draw when it steepens, and follow a scree slope to the base of the cliff. Walk north to locate the routes.
