Description [Edit]

Huge swath of the desert with lots of Wingate and other climbable sandstones, largely unexplored, undocumented, and undeveloped - for climbing that is, mining on the other hand...

While others might disagree, despite being in southeast Utah (south of I-70, east of the Green/Colorado rivers) this area, being 130+ driving miles from Moab is clearly not part of the "Moab Area." Also, while I'm at it, neither is anything south of the Abajos (Bluff, Texas/Arch Canyon, Bear's Ears, VOG), but that's a different argument.

Getting There [Edit]

State highways 276 and 95 are the nearby paved roads, Red Canyon and Radium King road are both good to get into the interior of the area.
