Description

This is a large, roughly southeast-facing bowl of Wingate and Chinle, sitting underneath Meek's Mesa. The boundary with Capitol Reef National Park runs through the center of this bowl, no new bolts within the park (check google earth for details). Probably only 6 or fewer quality lines, and as of Summer 2012, only one has gone up.

Getting There

20-30 minute approach. Find the Meek's Mesa trailhead (same as The Observatory), and head right at the Chinle until you can go no further.

The park boundary here seems to be marked with a fence. There is a gate in the fence down low. Higher toward the wingate the fence is in poorer condition, but it can serve as a good indicator of where to bolt and where not to bolt. Apr 21, 2013
