Description Suggest change

Beyond Civilization wall hosts 9 routes from 5.8-5.11, with the majority being in 5.8-5.9 range. The wall is west-facing and receives AM shade and PM sun. Typically there is an updraft from the valley that becomes stronger in the afternoon, occasionally creating gusty winds.

The best way to approach this crag is to rappel into it from the anchors on either Web of Life or 3rd Dimension. You can approach from a gully south of the crag, but this requires some loose class 4 and is not recommended. It's best to leave the dogs and small children at home.

There are toilets at the Land's End Observatory ~0.6 mile north of the crag (as well as an army of semi-domesticated chipmunks that the tourists feed) and free camping and bathrooms at Carson Lake ~15-20 minute drive south.

Getting There Suggest change

From Grand Junction drive south on US Highway 50 for ~13 miles and turn east (left) onto Kannah Creek Road. Stay on the main road following the signs to Land's End for ~18 miles. The road will "Y" once you've reached the top of the mountain, keep right and drive 0.6 miles and park at a cattle guard. Follow the fence line to the edge of the cliff and locate Metolius rappel hangers and rappel in. Drive time is ~1 hour.
