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.

Trail is kinda tough to find and follow. The one we took hit the wall about at the unnamed 5.10. Most of the routes are further right. Gets shade in the AM but sun later in the day. Apr 1, 2013

Anybody have better beta on where the trail starts? Sep 19, 2016
BJ we usually park at the large flat spot before the Selfish Wall parking (probably a fire ring there and maybe old cattle trough). From here hike straight up the prominent ridge. The trail has/had a few cairns and was in pretty good shape this last spring but gets a bit loose near the top. Sep 21, 2016

i have always parked just before the small pond (mud hole would be more accurate) that is on the right side when you are driving in. there is a small shale like hill that leads to a ridge, which goes pretty much straight up to the nice splitter hand crack. really cool wall. Sep 21, 2016

Amazing wall with little to no crowds! Unfortunately, there's some stuff missing and/or in the wrong order, so I've updated the page the best as I could. I only added routes that were in neither the current bloom guide or on mp. Hopefully this helps in the future!
P.S. theres about 7-8 routes between not too spicy and the long way home that is only listed in the book, check it out! May 28, 2018
