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 >>>


The Disappointment Cliffs is the largest cliff band at Indian Creek. Unfortunately, due to a lot of broken rock this area has fewer routes then other areas such as the Cat Wall. However this cliff holds some amazing lines such as Winner Takes All, The Angry Inch and Hong Kong Phooey.

This is the Big Cliff between Broken Tooth and the Second Meet Wall

Getting There 

Takes the Meat Walls dirt road for climbs on the left and the Six Star dirt road for climbs on the right. For climbs in the middle of the cliff such as Winner Takes All park your car in any of the dirt or paved pullouts along the 211.

This is one of the best finger cracks at Indian Creek. Start in a stemming corner for twenty feet then pull some thin moves out of a roof. From there its onto fifty feet of amazing fingerlocks on a slightly overhanging smooth wall. It gets into rattly fingers twenty before the leftward traverse that takes you to the anchors. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in Utah
