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 Grave Wall is an obscure crag just around the corner before reaching the Ice Cream Parlor. Perched above the Kane Creek road are two Tom Gilje routes: Grave and Unleashed; both follow crack systems but neither are your typical crack routes. Apparently the two routes originally shared a common anchor but currently Grave has an anchor twenty feet lower than Unleashed. This is a good warmer weather option as the wall faces north.

Getting There 

Drive down Kane Creek road, about 100 yards after crossing Hunter Creek look up and left and you'll see the routes. Scramble up the terraces and do a short, easy 5th class section to gain a big ledge at the base of the routes. There's a set of anchors that make it easy to rap from the ledge down to the road so that you can avoid down scrambling.

After a few feet a flake is reached offering decent gear placements, but its still a flake so it might be best not to fall? A few more moves get you safely past the flake and to the first bomber gear placements just in time for the crux. After the crux a nice rest ledge lets you recover before the enduro lay...[more]   Browse More Classics in Utah
