2nd Meat Wall Rock Climbing
|RAIN AND WET ROCK The sandstone around Moab is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. MORE INFO >>>|
This was once an obscure Indian Creek crag, but has now become quite popular due to an abundance of shady routes that are great for hot weather. Marco's I.C. guide is useful for getting oriented, but there are lots of newer routes, especially around the north side, that are not in his guide.
Heading west on the highway, drive west past Cat Wall, Broken Tooth, and Fin Wall. After a few miles look for a gated dirt road that leads to 2nd Meat, Tenderloins, Original Meat, and Sacred Cow Walls. The road is poor, but my Corolla makes it to the parking area for 2nd Meat (but not Original Meat). These days there is a pretty good trail that deposits you at the base of T-Bones Tonight and Tube Steaks Tomorrow.

This is a great mixed climb that requires endurance stemming/chimneying and the ability to crank on first-digit locks.Begin immediately right of Tofu Crack and head up a wide crack to the top of a large block. Climb up sandy rock to a ledge below the business: A long, narrowing finger crack on the right and an obtuse corner on the left. Head up this with increasing difficulty to a bolt, then bust some creative moves past a difficult second clip, and finally some pumpy but secure locks to the ...[more] Browse More Classics in Utah

Hey does anyone know what the routes are to the right of cube steaks? there's a varied corner that is fairly thin, i think in the book it's 10- and then there are 2 others a bit further down, one i think is splitter fingers and the other goes up a ramp and runs from .5's to good hands with a #5 pod at the top and has a 2nd 11+ pitch that's thin through a roof.

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.
