Description

This is the least popular of the meat walls, with a very faint and steep approach trail.
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

Drive down the dirt road towards original and second meat walls, but stick right until you reach a parking area with lots of broken glass and old nails. Park here, and walk up an old mining road until you can cut left up a wash (before the big rock in the road). Follow a poorly marked trail to the ridge, then head strait up towards the wall.

Climbed here spring of 2015 and the trail is a bit of a drag. But...if you are tired of people...this is the place to go. Apr 4, 2016
As of 10/8/14, a section of the road about a quarter of a mile past the gate was washed out, making it impassable to all but the bravest 4x4 drivers. Not sure of the condition of the rest of the road--we were short on time and opted to not park and hike in. Oct 9, 2014
Thanks again slim, I'm glad you had an opportunity to make it up there. If you head up again check out Kebab, Lamb Chop, Taco Flavored Kisses, Menudo and Blood Sausage. These routes put all the others to shame. By the way- the name "Raining Meat" came from all the crap flying down at my belayer (who was a good sport). I was super gripped and bleeding by the time I drilled the anchors, so it's good to hear 5.10 is a bit of a sandbag! Sep 25, 2012

we missed the trail on the way up, but caught it on the way down. from the 2nd meat wall parking spot, hike further southeast along the road and then across the terrace above the ravine. stay on the road as it curls a bit to the right (the sand on the road becomes more of a white color). keep going along the road for about 100 yards, even though you will feel like you are kind of headed too far to the right. keep your eye out for the trail on your left - it goes up to a lone boulder, and then up the hillside from there.

appreciated the fun routes and good anchors up there - good job you guys, looking forward to going back and doing some more routes. Sep 25, 2012

fat and dirty with a bit of attitude? ;) May 30, 2012
Thanks slim, we had a lot of fun out there this spring. We found a few gems and a lot of adventure. 1st Meat is pretty different from our normal IC fare, imagine if Escalante Canyon and the Colorado National Monument had a love child... May 29, 2012

whoa - you guys have been busy! i have enjoyed a lot of you and your friends' lines at other walls. really looking forward to checking out this wall too. thanks for the info. May 29, 2012
The "existing" approach trail is virtually non-existent and requires some nasty steep shenanigans to reach the cliff. There is a new trail that ascends a mellower, albeit soft, ridgeline with only minor sketchy looseness. To reach the start of the trail drive past the 2nd Meat parking and across a dry wash to an obvious primitive camp site. The trail leaves the site angling towards a large boulder ~200 meters away.
