RAIN AND WET ROCK The sandstone around Moab is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. MORE INFO >>>

Description 

Sacred Cow Wall has great collection of 5.11 cracks within a stone's throw from each other. The routes are long even by creek standards and are some of the finest at the creek. Since the Bloom guidebook things have gotten more crowded.

Getting There 

From 211 turn right onto the meat wall road. Take the left at the first fork in the dirt road and drive to its end. Hike the trail to the wall. The wall is north west from the Original Meat wall.

As of 10/8/14, a section of the road about a quarter of a mile past the gate was washed out, making it impassable to all but the bravest 4x4 drivers. Not sure of the condition of the rest of the road--we were short on time and opted to not park and hike in.
