Access Issue: No Toilet Facilities! Raptor Nesting Climbing Avoidance Areas - In Effect Details
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

As part of this wall is South facing, and part east facing, it tends to get a lot of sun, making it a good fall/winter area. Though there is not a huge selection of routes here, there are a few that are of high quality, one of them being Whale's Back (5.11-), a quality long corner splitter hand crack.

Getting There

To get there turn off 211 onto the Beef Basin Road (left side of the road past the pond, 8.1 miles beyond newspaper rock). Follow the dirt road past two cattle guards. Do not take the right turn to Bridger Jack camping area, but continue the left trend toward 4x4 wall. At about 2.3 miles past the turn off there will be a parking area on the left side, which is next to a great camping area. Park right around here and to the west you will see the east facing stone that is the east end of technicolor wall.
