Getting weather forecast...
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 wall has everything from 5.9 hand splitters, tips 5.12s, bone crushing squeezes, long cupped hand splitters, and overhanging #5s. All the anchors on this wall are brandnew. Every route was put up spring/fall of 2015. Gets sun just about all day an also receives an extra hour of light as it is up Donnelly Canyon.. Thir are trees all around the base of the wall that provide plenty of shade... The routes on this wall are crisp and untraveled. Get out and enjoy this gem.

Getting There

Same parking as Supercrack, Donnelly, and Battle of the Bulge. Walk up Donnelly canyon about 10 minutes to a small trail on the left. Look for a large cairn across the wash, and then follow a well-cairned trail to the base.

Thanks for the work Devin and co. Where exactly is this? Downstream from Battle of the Bulge? East or West side of the canyon? The map marker seems to be way off. Sep 24, 2015
I think some confusion may stem from DF's language (shocker, I know). If you're walking from the parking lot toward the back of Donnelly Canyon, you're walking up canyon. Nov 10, 2015

I like probably others looked at this wall and thought wow there must be climbs here, how could something so close be overlooked? Looks like great stuff, and done in great style, nice job! I can't wait to check it out. Jan 26, 2016

A really excellent wall with some outstanding lines! A touch Sandy and loose in spots but to be expected with New cliffs. Incredible work, this will easily compete with surrounding areas. Love the wide options. Mar 24, 2017
