Description

The Power Wall has a good concentration of shortish routes (we never moved our packs, an IC first); the best are in the 11+-5.12 range and require smaller gear. Warm up on a couple of easy hand/big hand cracks, check out the 140' 5.10 Flower Power dihedral, and then get ready to crank. Power Line (5.12) is the obvious 1" splitter, slightly overhanging; this may be TR'ed via a 5.11 stem/LB to its right. Thin cracks to the right are 5.12 and take a bunch of TCUs, or swing over from the warmup and toprope it. A widening corner on the left end, off a ledge, is 5.10.

Exposure is west. Bring two ropes to climb Flower Power (fun, worthwhile), or one if you just want to climb the shorter stuff.
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

Approach by parking as for Scarface and walking up an old road across (east) the drainage from Scarface; the Power Wall is the buttress at the back of the canyon. Head for a dirt cone with a cubical boulder and a rutted road on it.

the best approach trail to the Power Wall is about 50 ft more south of the Scarface downhill trailhead, on the same side of the road. this narrow but well-worn trail doesn't seem wide enough to ever been an old road. hard to see from afar at first, but it becomes more visible as you step close, with a flat walk off of the road onto dirt and grass. it would keep you on the southside grassy terrain out of the washes and off of the delicate soil later beyond the drainages. this better approach trail is clearly visible from up at the elevated base of Power Wall.
