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 [Suggest Change]

This is the wall across from Cliffs of Insanity, and has a huge kink in the wall that makes part of it face south for about 80 yards. There is a big right-arching crack visible from the approach. It seems a lot of the routes are new considering the book shows about 7. I'd say there are about 25 and most are 5.10s and 5.11s and one 13 ...(by Didier?)

Getting There [Suggest Change]

Take the gate directly across from the Super Bowl camp, then the first left turn, then right turn after a dip in a dried stream. There is a trail from the old mine at the end of this road heading down and right. The mine is way cool to check out. Next time I would just head straight back on the main dirt road inside the gate, and then just turn left into the dried large wash and drive until the lower-angle gully is in sight and hike the weakness up to the wall where the wall (left to right) takes a left turn out for 80 yards and then turns left for the rest of the way. Most of the routes are in the corner area and all have plaques.

This wall faces mostly west/southwest. However, there are about 4 routes that are bit more south facing. In my opinion I think this wall has some of the best views in the creek. You have great views of the six shooters, canyon lands and the submarine. Apr 2, 2009

can you get into this wall with a car, or do you need a high clearance vehicle? Mar 16, 2010
slim    
you could get there with a subaru or similar fairly easy. anything lower would be tough, but doable if you were pretty good at guerilla 4WD. unless you are talking a 64 impala w/ 16" spinners, or something like that... Mar 16, 2010
Not recommended. Huge approach, sandy climbs, and mainly weird sizes. Save your energy and go somewhere else... Oct 9, 2010

Wow if this is a huge approach I wonder what a short approach is (Potash Road?). Sandy climbs? umm no this is Indian Creek most climbs are very clean. Highly recommended despite the approach! Jan 31, 2012
Lost a grigri up here on 4/9! If found my number is 515-556-5115 Text me if you have found it and are a kind person! Apr 15, 2017
