Description

Small Adventures Wall, aka 313 Slabs, has a handful of bolted friction slab routes. While it's not the same quality desert climbing that can be found nearby, it is very convenient, has a number of moderate routes, and is a good place for a quick stop to give your calves a burn. The rock is sandy, sticky and has very few features, though a few edges, dishes and huecos do appear at times.

Beware, there are some loose flakes and plates. I was standing on a 3' x 3' plate when it sheared completely off the wall. I somehow managed to run backwards down the slab for 10 feet before the rope caught me as the plate shattered down the face below me, luckily missing the rope, my belayer, and the 2 dogs.

There is toprope access from the left side of the wall via a slabby ledge for several of the routes, though the ledge gets less defined the farther right you go.

I've only climbed 2 routes here (Tide to Tye & The Calla Way). If you climb any of these routes, feel free to add route descriptions and verify bolt counts and anchor status.
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

From Moab, drive north on 191, then turn west on Highway 313 towards Canyonlands and Dead Horse Point State Park. From this intersection, drive 2.2 miles. The obvious slabby wall is on the right, and there is a parking lot on the left. Takes all of 60 seconds to walk to the base.
