RAIN AND WET ROCK The sandstone around Moab is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. MORE INFO >>>

Description 

the road less traveled. there is an amazing amount of absolutely stellar climbing south of moab. conditions run the gamut. wilson and looking glass can be a spectacle but seclusion is the norm.

Getting There 

this area starts where the moab rim ends south of moab and spanish valley and ends at the turn off to indian creek (which is an area in itself). heading south from moab there's a hill that climbs you out of the valley and drops down to a rest stop (where seraph is). 191 continues south with many side canyons and roads.

This climb, though tiny, still take some thought, planning , skill, time, and patience. At one point , you have to climb through a cave with lots of bat-shit. I placed a pin or two, and also took one very large cam;...it's steep too. It's a cool summit, with a very short approach, and even though the climbing aint' *****,...it's still fun and challenging enough to keep your attention. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in UT
