Description

A nice concentration of long mostly sport climbs.
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

Where the arroyo meets the rim, look for a trail going right. Look for the black chain anchor of the Gauntlet on the rim after about 200 yards. Anchors on Bust a Move are also pretty visible. 65M rope required to rap The Gauntlet, though 4 of the routes can be done with a 60M rope if approached from below as they don’t go to the rim. High Gravity and Gray Matter can be climbed passed their anchors to the rim for an end of day escape. To approach from below, look for a conspicuous pinnacle a little ways after turning right from the arroyo. A ramp leads to the base of the wall. Keep going and the Gauntlet Wall will be obvious. Notice the massive unclimbed OW roof…
