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 

The Triple Buttress Area is comprised of three distinct walls offering high quality routes and shade most of the day. Buttresses one and three have a couple of routes each that are worth checking out but the Bond Buttress (middle of the three) is stacked with high quality routes from short single pitches to four pitch rim routes!

Getting There 

Drive approximately 1.3 miles up the canyon from Potash Rd. and park on the left. Hike up a faint trail with cairns to Buttress One. Head right near the base to reach the other two buttresses.

Jinx is a classic Moab rim route with lots of finger sizes and nothing bigger than a #3 Camalot. The first pitch starts up Dr. Goodhead and then traverses right at an obvious horizontal weakness. Continue up a thin right facing corner with a bolt, that gradually opens up to fingers and then tight hands to a roof. Stopping at the anchor below the roof keeps the first pitch at 5.11 or avoid the hanging belay and traverse out left fighting around the lip of the roof (crux), then up easier ...[more]   Browse More Classics in Utah
