Description

Evan's Overlook is named such for lack of a better name. We were driving out that day trying to decide where to climb for 1/2 day when Even pulled over and pointed up at the cliff just above and said 'Let's try that!' And so we did. The large overlook lot below it was obvious and people stopped there off and on all day, including a few area guides that commented that they'd never seen people climbing in the area, which was obvious for other reasons we found later as well.
The cliff has aspects from South to East and has some features in morning or afternoon shade. The rock ranges from horrible to Indian Creek like, with the developed routes being solid enough that we trusted gear in them, and the bottom section of one we tried being so bad that holds powdered instead of crumbled. It was no surprise, given the rock form there. The rock is actually pretty predictable.
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

Drive 1.5 miles in from the gate at the top of the road. There is a large pullout on the left with a few junipers in it. On the right is a wall with several cracks and a free-standing tower.
