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 >>>


This is a sunny wall briefly described in the current guidebook. A few routes here and there, most look fairly moderate and somewhat short. An awesome looking climb on the left side plaqued "Imagine" (no rating) looks like it has an insane bouldery start to a stellar finger to hand crack. Has this been freed?

Getting There 

Approach as for The Wall except take a right at the first major fork. Continue straight up canyon to a parking area and a well thought out trail that may be a little hard to find but worth it. (At least 75 cairns!)

"Imagine" has been climbed free. You start in the crack at the right, then work your way left (very difficult) to the main line. FA was done by Mark Hesse.

This wall is loaded with good moderate (10s and 11s) climbs. The great majority of climbs on this wall were put up by myself, Sam Crater, John Musso, and Ann Pinney. In the year 2000, only "Imagine" was established. We called the wall: "The Election" wall and most of the climbs have names related to politics. Most of the climbs end at about 25 to 30 meters, but several are longer including "Media Frenzy". It is hoped that the 2nd edition of David Bloom's guide will include more information on this wall.

Interesting Nelson. We got the new guidebook the day after our first visit to 75 Cairns/Election Wall and I was wondering why the name was different. We only climbed three of the routes there but there seemed to be enough to go back for. The trail up was good too. I was glad I had replacement webbing for all the routes we did.

I've heard this wall called the Cow Pie in the Sky before. I think it is a pretty fun spot away from the crowds.

A very cool wall! Almost every route needs chain though so consider bringing some.
The approach is quite nice and shorter than going to The Wall!

Does anyone know anything about the sweet fingercrack to the right of Spiderpig? looks fun and hard!

Anyone know who put up the finger crack on the far right side of the wall? It was mostly tips (for me) and felt somewhere in the range of 12 to 12+. A stellar route by the way!

are you talking about the one in almost black rock, maybe 100' right of spiderpig? that thing looks pretty cool, and hard.
