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 site of an ancient meteor impact, the area has plenty of sandstone boulders that have the potential to be climbed. Most of it is choss but when you can find solid holds, the climbs are pretty awesome.

It can be sunny so wear your sunscreen.

Not many people check out the boulders and the park rangers didn't seem to mind that I was there so definitely a secluded spot.

Getting There 

Follow the signs to Upheaval Dome and then go crazy with the boulders

The second move to the crack is kind of sketchy because the rock doesn't feel super solid and the crimp is pretty vital....[more]   Browse More Classics in Utah
