|RAIN AND WET ROCK The sandstone around Moab is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. MORE INFO >>>|
This is a big spread out area basically encompassing everything along the River Road north of Moab. The climbing is very diverse, including everything from nailups on towers, one pitch cragging, and even one of Moab's most popular bouldering areas.
Approaches range from 1 minute strolls from the car to 1 hour uphill bushwhacks through loose rock. There is a ton of new route potential here - there are at least 10 unclimbed lines for every established route.
All of River Road between Moab and the Dewey Bridge has climbing. Most of the time you just park in a pullout along the road.

Black Angus V7 7A+ Utah

An oft neglected classic. Black Angus takes the leaning sloper ramp all the way to the top. Start matched on a crimp rail and make your way out to the arete and up the sloping rail to the flat top out. You'll be very high off the ground once your close to the top and the farther you go the worse your landing gets. The sun beats down on the black varnished sloper rail so this is probably much easier when the temps are low....[more] Browse More Classics in Utah
