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

This is a shady, high-elevation climbing area in solid, featured Dakota Sandstone. The crag is surrounded by Aspens that rustle in the breezes and you can hear Brumley Creek racing away below at the bottom of the canyon. Rock quality is extremely high and its hard to beat the high elevation climbing in June-August!

Purchase the guidebook "High on Moab" to see route names and descriptions and full color photos for this area.

Getting There

From the Moab Information Center, drive south 7.8 mi on US191 and turn left at sign that points to La Sal Loop Road. After 0.6 miles, turn right at the T intersection and continue up the La Sal Loop road for 10.8 miles to turn right onto Geyser Pass Rd. Drive 4.2 miles to an obvious left switchback and park on the side of the road. An obvious foot trail leads into the trees and to the top of the crag. Turn left at the Y on the foot path to access the top of several crags, follow the path to the right to continue to the bottom of the crag.

Consider using the pit toilet 1/4 mile up the road past the parking spot and use a carry-out LNT ethic for solid human waste.
