|RAIN AND WET ROCK The sandstone around Moab is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. MORE INFO >>>|
This is a big spread out area basically encompassing everything along the River Road north of Moab. The climbing is very diverse, including everything from nailups on towers, one pitch cragging, and even one of Moab's most popular bouldering areas.
Approaches range from 1 minute strolls from the car to 1 hour uphill bushwhacks through loose rock. There is a ton of new route potential here - there are at least 10 unclimbed lines for every established route.
All of River Road between Moab and the Dewey Bridge has climbing. Most of the time you just park in a pullout along the road.

The final move over the lip is very awkward and is easily overcome by pulling on a cam This is an exciting route with some good exposure and a lot of moderate climbing peppered with some fun moments of groveling. Definitely lives up...[more] Browse More Classics in Utah
