Description

Supercrack Buttress is probably the most popular/crowded area at Indian Creek. Some of the most famous cracks in the desert are here - Supercrack, Incredible Handcrack, Coyne Crack, etc. Expect stellar climbing with good protection and a casual approach, but don't expect solitude.

If you are looking for solitude, please don't cross the road in search of it. There is no access to the cliffs across the road without trespassing!
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

From the main parking area about 4 miles past Newspaper Rock, Supercrack Buttress will be obvious. Follow a well worn trail to the base, and look for the crowds to mark the start of most routes.

I lost a black Patagonia R1 pullover with no hood at this wall today (April 14) at the base of 3 am crack. If anyone sees it can you shoot me a message at rocknrunmargie at gmail dot com or on here please? Thank you! Apr 14, 2016

Had the wall all to ourselves; all of the Creek, for that matter. Yes, it was the middle of July. But Supercrack Buttress is in the shade until about 12:30. :-) Jul 16, 2012

Just came back from Indian Creek over thanksgiving, and the bolts on IHC, supercrack, and 3AM crack all look bomber. (they may have been replaced/enhanced since Scott's post). I would agree that lowering through them would be hard on the gear though Nov 28, 2004

After going to S.C. Buttress earlier last week I noticed that on many of the more popular climbs (S.C, 3AM, IHC, etc....) the anchors are in need of some care. The bolts are all sound, but the some of the chains and rings are pretty worn. The quicklink on the right anchor on Supercrack is worn about 60% through(top and bottom). Amazingly enough a group was toproping THROUGH the anchor. I had an extra quicklink, but no pliers to unscrew the old one. I was hoping some of the regulars might think about updating some quick links here and there. Hopefully, next time I'll have some extras and some pliers/cutters to make these a little safer. I'd be nice if just a few people left some new gear so we don't have to be witness to a splatter. Feb 23, 2004
