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 

This is the first wall encountered on the left (west) side of the wash just beyond the gate. It is named after the large rock scar leftover after a panel of the cliff collapsed some time ago. There are only a couple of lines here to date. They receive morning sun, and are good afternoon shade options.

Getting There 

Cross the gate and continue up the two track for a couple of hundred yards. Cut left (west) and up the loose talus hillside to the wall. Approach time is approximately 10 minutes from the car.

A clean, left-facing dihedral that starts hands and quickly widens to fists and then tenuous, rattly fists. The anchor is located where the crack rolls over onto slabbier terrain and the rock gets soft. The rock is pretty clean and solid, considering this is on the fringe of the giant rock scar. Barely got to sneak this one in before dark on a surprisingly warm late-fall day, hence the name....[more]   Browse More Classics in Utah
