Access Issue: No Toilet Facilities! Raptor Nesting Climbing Avoidance Areas - In Effect Details
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

Secluded, sunny (or shady) crag between the Election Wall and the Cliffs of Insanity. Great concentration of less-travelled but very high quality moderate climbs with some harder ones interspersed. Expect less than ideal anchors and some sandy rock on many of the climbs. Aspects range from SW on the right to due N on the left.

Getting There

Take the 4WD double-track to the standard parking for Cliffs of Insanity. Follow the road immediately across from the Superbowl Campground to a fork. Turn R here.

From the small parking area, locate a cairn and a footpath through the scrub. This path will dip down into a wash eventually, turn L and look right for a cairn at a turn in the wash. This will lead up through the talus to the wall. Footpath is a little tracey in spots but otherwise well graded and cairned.
