|RAIN AND WET ROCK The sandstone around Moab is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. MORE INFO >>>|
An excellent route away from the crowds of Wall Street, yet still on Potash Road. This route climbs a ramp that quickly steepens to vertical, then slightly overhanging as the crack size narrows from 3 inches to 1/2 an inch. The rock is a bit soft with a hollow flake in the beginning (easy climbing). But, turns to beautiful black varnished wingate sandstone as the difficulty increases.
Located on Potash Road several hundred feet down river of mile marker 7, few hundred feet down river of a "Falling Rock" sign. The route climbs the right side of a pillar (see photo). There is a huge, deep chimney 60 feet left of this climb. This route faces due south.
Cams from 1/2 inch to 3 inches. Two bolt anchor.
A fun route to avoid the crowds
