BETA PHOTO: Abraxes Wall from the Amasa Back trail

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 MORE INFO >>>

Description 

The wall is south facing so it isn't a very good summer area, but is great for the winter mornings.

Getting There 

The wall is just down steam and across the canyon from the Amasa back trailhead. It is the obvious prow like area on the right as you look at the large alcove from the trailhead.
There are multiple good, clean, one to two pitch crack climbs

The subtle right-facing corner with a small roof at the top in the middle of the southwest facing section of Abraxis. Straightforward corner climbing gives way to inventive arete pinching, steep jugs, and jamming to the anchor. A very unique route on exceptional Navajo sandstone. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in Utah
