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

Though Blanding is full of out-doors-people, bolted climbs seem to be rare in the immediate vicinity. Hopefully this will help some of the interested locals to find and share some places to top-rope or to bolt some new climbs.

Getting There

Blanding, UT is just over an hour south of Moab, twenty miles south of Monticello and twenty minutes north of Bluff.

Respect and Protect

Please Respect and Protect archaeological sites: Stay on trail, help prevent damage. Don’t move artifacts, let everyone enjoy the discovery. Stay out of ancient buildings and off walls, they are fragile! Report looting and vandalism: 1 800 722 3998
