Description

This wall has many shorter quality routes and is off the beaten path. There are west, south and east faces so you can easily chase the sun.
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

This buttress is left of Six Star and right of Hong Buttress. Approach as for Public Service but park where the road forks left down a creek bed. Follow cairns up creek bed to a good trail.

We were up there on 3.19.16. This was my first real crack climbing experience and the collection of easy to moderate routes was a very good introduction. I took a couple of photos while I was there including a 3d photo that is linked on Google maps. Look at this link from a computer for best results.

The approach is nice and easy. If you have a vehicle with decent ground clearance you can cut about .5 miles off at the start. The weather was beautiful up there with the Hand Solo side being in the sun most of the day while the climbs on the I & I side of the wall having plenty of afternoon shade. Mar 23, 2016
The wall was named selfish because i started putting routes up there in the summer time and had no partners. So I taught my self how to rope solo and put up the first lines. Later with various partners i went back for the FFA's. I am pleased to see that people have contributed more great routes up there. A fantastic wall for climbers wanting to start leading..

we parked on the highway and walked about 40 min at a quick pace to the crag. you can drive about .5 miles down the the dirt road with a low rider to a parking area and save your self about 10 min...great concentration of moderates. May 3, 2011
The road is typically not bad, we made it back there with a rear wheel drive van with decent clearance. Apr 5, 2010
