  • Poop Alert! MORE INFO >>>
  • 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 

    Wingate sandstone with roadside (shoulder of the highway) belaying and excellent access from Moab with well over a hundred climbs from 5.4 TRs to 5.12, mixed sport and trad. Actually too many routes with some contrived sport routes in too small an area, but worth a visit. Gets morning to midday sun and in the warm season stays very hot until late in the afternoon. Be wary of descriptions in some guidebooks; anchors have disappeared from some climbs, so carry a selection of trad gear on climbs where you can't see them. Restrooms are available .3 miles N at Jaycee campground and .8 miles S of the Indian Writing sign at the south end of the climbing area.

    This is a good area to get a feel for some of the climbing in the area, or if you only have limited time in the area. Expect it to always be crowded, even in full-sun summer conditions. Cool off and refill water later at the (potable) natural spring on the N side of River Road (turn E just south of the bridge on 191 as you head back to Moab, it's on the right in an obvious large paved pullout).

    Getting There 

    Drive north out of Moab on 191 and cross the bridge over the Colorado; continue 1.3 miles and make the left (south) turn onto Potash Road (279). The climbing areas start about 4.2 miles onto the road (at the 'Park in Designated Areas Only' sign). General parking is in turnouts on both sides of the road for the next mile or so, generally under the climbs themselves. Use caution as 4x4s and trucks generally ignore the 30mph speed limit in the area, and tourists gawk and don't watch the road as they go past. I personally wear a road guard vest while belaying to alert people that I'm not potential target.

    The crux is at the top two bolts, bit spooky and run-out to the chains. An excellent route all the same, even more so in the afternoon, when it is in the shade.However, this route is much more exciting if you don't have a guidebook and start up it because it "looks cool".... I think this is the best "sport" route on Potash Road....[more]   Browse More Classics in Utah

    I saw a nice splitter that went right through the petroglyphs. It didn't have chalk on it but it did have an anchor above it. It looked incredible. Anyone know what it is?

    Climbing near petroglyphs or pictographs seriously threatens climbing access anywhere.

    Hey John.
    A lot of those routes got put up before the mandate on petroglyphs was issued. The rule is now closer than 50 feet, I believe. We would be wise to heed it.

    The description says Wingate but this is definitely the softer Navajo sandstone.

    Is anyone familiar with WhiteWay(5.11) or the WhiteWay Varaition(5.6)?? According to the Desert Rock Guidebook I believe it is just left of Potstash on the other side of the cottonwood tree.

    Mr. L: I read a blurb in that book about the 5.6 variation off to the left. I don't think it exists.

    Are there any routes here that extend to the top of the wall? Seems like a shame if there's not since it looks like great rock for another 200+ feet above most anchors here...

    The rock looks good but it deteriorates a lot. The best stuff is at the bottom.

    Years ago Nathan Martin and I climbed to the rim starting with the route Pin Head. I highly recommend against climbing routes to the rim! The rock quality ranged from really bad to vertical sand, and with the potential of bombing somebody below.

    Administrators: Is it possible to put all of these routes on Wall Street in order from one side to another? This is done for other areas on MP. It is still confusing to try to find routes. Thanks!

    Had to bail due to rain and left six quick draws on Potstash. They are orange and silver mad rock quick draws with orange and green tagging. If you have them, please text/call Keegan (802-779-3149). Thanks!

    Hi, I left a cam and some gear on a climb here yesterday as it started raining. we came back after an hour to retrieve but it was gone. If you have them , we would greatly appreciate their return and provide a six pack for your efforts! Thanks!

    I guess this is relevant to mention, although I can't believe it. PLEASE DON'T STAND IN THE ROAD AND BELAY. Its still a road. Be reasonable.
    Thanks

    I'm looking for a place to camp near Wall Street. Can i just set up a hammock anywhere and spend the night or am i required to use a campsite? Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated thanks!

    Human waste is becoming a HUGE problem on Wall St. If you need to take the Browns to the super bowl (poop) PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE get in the car (it's right next to you) and drive the 1/2 mile in either direction to a campground and use the bathroom. You might lose 10 minutes of your day, but I'm sure you'll still get your pitches in. If that is too much effort for you, bring a wag bag and dispose of it in the dumpster at the campground on your way back to town. There is no excuse for this behavior, hold yourself and your friends accountable so we can maintain our access.
