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 >>>


Though Blanding is full of out-doors-people, bolted climbs seem to be rare in the immediate vicinity. Hopefully this will help some of the interested locals to find and share some places to top-rope or to bolt some new climbs.

BBC V4 6B Utah : Moab Area : ... : Blanding Boulders
This beautiful face has waited far too long for a FA. If it were in Joes or Kraft boulders, there would be a line waiting to devour it's highball goodness. Hug your way up the skinny, black face with heelhooks and toehooks to the heart pounding finish. The finish is easy with all jugs but almost guaranteed to make you pee a little. You can also cheat and step around the left corner onto a flake and skip the mantle but that's for wimps. Best route in the area!...[more]   Browse More Classics in Utah
