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

This is the sunny wall across the way from the Maverick Buttress. Great winter crag with lots of sandy classics, although not as concentrated as Maverick.
Should be noted that there are 2 walls up here left and right and there is definitely a small but noticeable (esp if you aren’t expecting it) hike between the two walls

Getting There

Take Potash Rd. to the Jug Handle Arch pullout that accesses Long's Canyon and drive a ways. Park at the first of the switchbacks just before reaching Maverick Buttress near two gullys. Hike up the right hand gully that accesses the bench at the base of the wall. Most of the routes are on the right end of the wall. There is lots of beautiful petrified wood in the area.
