Access Issue: No Toilet Facilities! Raptor Nesting Climbing Avoidance Areas - In Effect March 1st 2021 Details
Access Issue: 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

Description

The Public Service Wall is on the backside of the Fin Wall. It is a long wall with lots of forgotten gems. It was really popular in the 1990's, but then seemed to fall into obscurity.

Getting There

This wall is 9 miles past Newspaper Rock. The best way to access the wall is to park at the Fin Wall, hike to the base of the cliffs and then walk around the buttress to the back side of the Fin Wall.
