Description 

Cottonwood Wash is a secluded area just north of Bluff. The area's cliffs face mostly east and west. There are many routes and potential for more. I would suggest glue with bolts or pins for new routes as the stone is fairly soft. The cleanest lines have a red varnish, expect some sandy lines though. There is a trail/road through the wash but getting to some climbs require crossing shallow water. There are also sticker bushes abound, pants recomended.


Getting There 

Heading west through Bluff on US 163/191 turn right between mile marker 24 and 25 just past a bridge. The right turn is at some rodeo grounds, San Juan County 273 (3rd St. West), and is poorly marked/easy to miss. Drive up this residential road till you reach a locked gate. Park and enter through the gate. Access is permitted although the gate is locked.

The Bant 5.9+ 5c 17 VI E1 5a  UT : Moab Area : Cottonwood Wash
This route climbs the south face of a small tower. It has fun laybacks to a bolt protected mantle to gain the top. The second should be aware of the pendulum if they were to fall at the mantle....[more]   Browse More Classics in UT
