The scramble. I would call this easy 4th class.

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 >>>


There are at least two separate crags in this area. The Theater is the first one when you come to after scrambling up the Cinema is a short walk further down stream. See "High on Moab" by Karl Kelly for more info.

Getting There 

Near mile marker 11 on UT-128 park at Take-Out Beach and find trail on the down stream side of parking area near large boulder. It is a short hike and short scramble to reach the base of the crag.

This area should probably be placed under the River Road area so it is with other sub-areas of that bigger area.

Note: To get up to the crag, there is a three-moveish Class 4 scramble, AKA, getting young kid(s) or a dog up to the walls could be a pain in the ass or not possible. While there, two groups bailed, one with kids under five, another with a dog. Another group built an anchor above the scramble to top-rope a nine-year-old up.

We couldn't have left this off MP? Now it'll get overrun just like everything else with bolts in the area. :(
