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 

Flintstone Rock is what we called a wall we decided to check out one stormy day in April after previous scouting party gave us a tip on a couple of FA's in the area. The rock is somewhat soft Navajo sandstone but good enough, the approach is nice and the setting is great.

Getting There 

Hike up Gold Bar Canyon roughly half a mile past two small drainages coming in from the right side. Stay high on the benches above the main canyon following a fairly obvious trail. In the second side drainage there's an interesting natural arch. Just a little further on the next buttress the routes will come into view.

Betty isn't as sexy as Wilma but is lot more fun. Start in the corner getting good hand jams in pretty decent rock. There are a few wide looking sections but the route pretty much climbs as a hand crack....[more]   Browse More Classics in Utah
