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 >>>


A small crag with a short approach in the heart of the indian creek madness. Not as good as it looks from the road, but there are a few good routes. Most of them are short but its quiet and there are some good moderate routes.

Getting There 

This is the next buttress down the road past battle of the bulge and before scorpion corner. Pullouts for parking before and after the buttress. Not much of an approach trail, do as little damage as possible.

the far left side of this wall has a nice concentration of fairly short, but fun routes. makes a good last day at the creek as the approach is short and the the wall is on your way out.

There is good parking for this crag on the east side of the road. It's 1 mile north of the Supercrack parking and 2.7 miles south of the Beef Basin Road. The crag is rarely busy. Though the routes are a bit sandier, this could be a good place to go with folks who are new to The Creek.

This wall has a variety of great climbs of different lengths. Many are super good quality.

Park on the left side of the buttress and take a good trail that spits you out right at the awesome Violator OW (5.11). Route is visible from the road.

The Bloom book is somewhat useful but not great for the area.

Routes #1-7 are pretty accurate, although I would give Full Cavity Search 3 stars as it is super cool.

To the right of Violator you have in order the following (not all routes are included):

Lady Bird (under big leaning block)
#8 LFD
#9 RFD
#10 and #11 share anchors (#11 is called Nutter Fingers [old plaque found])
For landmark--- next is the "tower"
#12 60' long LFD 5.11- *** super fun! route is above juniper tree
#13 this one is 20 feet to the right, above another juniper
#14 Tiffany's Mall Tour hands in slot to LFD
For landmark--- an old aid line?
#15 Sinbad was a Dog, located on prow by dead juniper
#16 tips dihedral, bullet holes at start, located after turning corner to the right, soil is grey here
#17 Slip huge pink LFD, looks awesome
New Route--- "O" the Big Black Dog, OW 5.11, 35m, **** super awesome and clean
#18 Bombs over Belgrade, a very dark LFD, 5.11, 28m, ****
New Route--- unknown, fists, OW, huge roof, more OW, super fun, rating unknown maybe 5.11
New Route--- Brother "O", OW, 5.11-, *** the wavy gravy of OWs, cool moves, 70ft
#20 The Big "O", OW, 5.10, ***
Spittness, 5.10-, (wrong order in book)
#21 Hot Sex, black LFD on top of terrace
A few misc routes follow next….. they are a bit hard to decipher.
#24 unknown 5.10, LFD, ***, located far right above a big square boulder

Any additional input to the above list would be cool. I really like this wall.

Thanks for the additional info Mia.

Found the bloom book to be pretty lacking for this wall. The routes here are far more spread out than we had inferred from the descriptions, and the topo is worse than useless as it lists routes in the wrong order with no regard for the scale of distance between them.

I'm attaching a crude topo with approximate locations of climbs we could recognize, identified by the numbers given in the guidebook. Hopefully you have an easier time navigating than we did.

Beyond that, pretty fun little crag which is highly accessible and rarely crowded. Many thanks to the developers.
