Description

This cliff is the long stretch of wall immediately right of Way Rambo. Climbs are fairly spread out, but many grades are more moderate.
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

See the directions for Way Rambo. You can easily approach the far left end (Chest Full of Kind) from that approach, or park well before you get to the cattle guard and gate and make your way up to the more central part of the cliff.

Bioturbation is the disturbance of soil/sediment by living things. So it can be above or below sea level. Maybe they saw some creature borrowing when up at the wall or noted the cows trampling the soil in the valley floor? Nov 5, 2014
Why is it called Bioturbation wall? Bioturbation happens underwater. Wingate is an aeolian (formed on land) sandstone. Is there a funny story? Jan 30, 2013
The Army of Darkness installed new hangers and bolts. The creepy Leepers are gone. Oct 22, 2007
Anyone doing bioturbation (super clean finger crack in an LFD on the right side of the wall)slap on some new hangers at the anchors. Those old leepers gave me the creeps, I didn't have any to spare or it would be done. I guess when you load em they sometimes shatter according to the manufacturer. Apr 4, 2005
