Description

Wingate sandstone with roadside (shoulder of the highway) belaying and excellent access from Moab with well over a hundred climbs from 5.4 TRs to 5.12, mixed sport and trad. Actually too many routes with some contrived sport routes in too small an area, but worth a visit. Gets morning to midday sun and in the warm season stays very hot until late in the afternoon. Be wary of descriptions in some guidebooks; anchors have disappeared from some climbs, so carry a selection of trad gear on climbs where you can't see them. Restrooms are available .3 miles N at Jaycee campground and .8 miles S of the Indian Writing sign at the south end of the climbing area.

This is a good area to get a feel for some of the climbing in the area, or if you only have limited time in the area. Expect it to always be crowded, even in full-sun summer conditions. Cool off and refill water later at the (potable) natural spring on the N side of River Road (turn E just south of the bridge on 191 as you head back to Moab, it's on the right in an obvious large paved pullout).
Poop Alert! Details
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

Drive north out of Moab on 191 and cross the bridge over the Colorado; continue 1.3 miles and make the left (south) turn onto Potash Road (279). The climbing areas start about 4.2 miles onto the road (at the 'Park in Designated Areas Only' sign). General parking is in turnouts on both sides of the road for the next mile or so, generally under the climbs themselves. Use caution as 4x4s and trucks generally ignore the 30mph speed limit in the area, and tourists gawk and don't watch the road as they go past. I personally wear a road guard vest while belaying to alert people that I'm not potential target.

LOST SHOES:

I think I left a pair of black and blue size 12 Guide Tennies at Wall Street on 10/22/2017, probably by Steel Your Face or Banana Peel. If anyone found them, please contact me and I'll compensate you for the cost of sending them back and then some. pfontana93@gmail.com Oct 23, 2017
Left a pair of green La Sportiva Mythos here on 9/2/2017 size 40 EU. Please reach out to me if you found them. I would really like to get them back. Thanks! nataliekane37@gmail.com Sep 3, 2017

Human waste is becoming a HUGE problem on Wall St. If you need to take the Browns to the super bowl (poop) PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE get in the car (it's right next to you) and drive the 1/2 mile in either direction to a campground and use the bathroom. You might lose 10 minutes of your day, but I'm sure you'll still get your pitches in. If that is too much effort for you, bring a wag bag and dispose of it in the dumpster at the campground on your way back to town. There is no excuse for this behavior, hold yourself and your friends accountable so we can maintain our access. May 4, 2017
I'm looking for a place to camp near Wall Street. Can i just set up a hammock anywhere and spend the night or am i required to use a campsite? Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated thanks! Mar 14, 2017

I guess this is relevant to mention, although I can't believe it. PLEASE DON'T STAND IN THE ROAD AND BELAY. Its still a road. Be reasonable.

Hi, I left a cam and some gear on a climb here yesterday as it started raining. we came back after an hour to retrieve but it was gone. If you have them , we would greatly appreciate their return and provide a six pack for your efforts! Thanks! Sep 23, 2016
Had to bail due to rain and left six quick draws on Potstash. They are orange and silver mad rock quick draws with orange and green tagging. If you have them, please text/call Keegan (802-779-3149). Thanks! May 28, 2016
Found a pair of 5.10 climbing shoes last weekend near the base of Yogini. Shoot me a message if you left your shoes there and I'll get them back to you! May 16, 2016

Administrators: Is it possible to put all of these routes on Wall Street in order from one side to another? This is done for other areas on MP. It is still confusing to try to find routes. Thanks! Apr 26, 2012

Left some Ray Bans somewhere at the base of wall street. If anyone has seen them the owner would be extremely happy to have them back. Thanks Feb 5, 2012
Years ago Nathan Martin and I climbed to the rim starting with the route Pin Head. I highly recommend against climbing routes to the rim! The rock quality ranged from really bad to vertical sand, and with the potential of bombing somebody below. Apr 9, 2009

The rock looks good but it deteriorates a lot. The best stuff is at the bottom. Apr 9, 2009
Are there any routes here that extend to the top of the wall? Seems like a shame if there's not since it looks like great rock for another 200+ feet above most anchors here... Apr 8, 2009
Mr. L: I read a blurb in that book about the 5.6 variation off to the left. I don't think it exists. Aug 18, 2008
Is anyone familiar with WhiteWay(5.11) or the WhiteWay Varaition(5.6)?? According to the Desert Rock Guidebook I believe it is just left of Potstash on the other side of the cottonwood tree. Aug 18, 2008

The description says Wingate but this is definitely the softer Navajo sandstone. May 19, 2008

Hey John.
A lot of those routes got put up before the mandate on petroglyphs was issued. The rule is now closer than 50 feet, I believe. We would be wise to heed it. Jan 8, 2008
Climbing near petroglyphs or pictographs seriously threatens climbing access anywhere. Jan 8, 2008

I saw a nice splitter that went right through the petroglyphs. It didn't have chalk on it but it did have an anchor above it. It looked incredible. Anyone know what it is? Jan 8, 2008
