Description

Cottonwood Wash is a secluded area just north of Bluff. The area's cliffs face mostly east and west. There are many routes and potential for more. I would suggest glue with pins or half inch bolts for new routes as the stone is fairly soft. The cleanest lines have a red varnish, expect some sandy lines though. There is a trail/road through the wash but getting to some climbs require crossing shallow water. There are also sticker bushes abound, pants recomended.
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

Heading west through Bluff on US 163/191 turn right between mile marker 24 and 25 just past a bridge. The right turn is at some rodeo grounds, San Juan County 273 (3rd St. West), and is poorly marked/easy to miss. Drive up this residential road till you reach a locked gate. Park and enter through the gate. Access is permitted although the gate is locked.
