Overview

Wall Street, the most popular climbing area near Moab, is a towering 500-foot-high cliff that looms above the Colorado River and UT 279 (=Potash Road). The highway is sandwiched between the cliffs and the river. The cliff, composed of Navajo sandstone, is easily accessed from numerous pullouts below the routes. Access time from car to cliff is usually less than a minute, making Wall Street the ultimate roadside crag.
Wall Street has more than 100 routes good for all levels of climbing. Most lines are single pitch, there are some bolts, but many routes required trad gear placement as well. Routes range in difficulty from 5.4 to 5.12, with the majority falling into the 5.10s.

Re: .....

Thank you Senad. It is such an easy place to visit after hiking or biking on Moab. Sometimes I stop only for one route...

I'm not sure

I've seen so many pictures and so many times Moad advertised as a cycling area that I wonder if you didn't incline your camera 90°C and were crawling on the floor instead of climbing these vertical drops ! :))
