Description

The name given in Eric Bjornstad's Desert Rock for the walls along the Potash Road from Williams Bottom to Culvert Canyon. There is no real concentration of climbs, rather a scattering of a few routes. For the most part this section of the Potash Road has southern exposure making it a good winter climbing scene.
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

Follow directions for the Potash Road. Middle Earth is the designation of walls begining at William's Bottom which is the second campground along HWY 279, extending down river to Culvert Canyon.
