|State Highway 313
Turn at 313 and cross the rail tracks. If you park at the paved pullout where the information site is and then x-country over to the Cutler band below the talus slope, there are a couple routes. Don't remember if we ever got around to really naming these routes. Short approach. Not really chossy but possibly grainy and a little sandy in some sections. We didn't have to clean this up too much at all on the FAs.
SORRY the info here is so minimal. I can't remember details, had no photos, and will probably expand this sometime (maybe).
Climb 1: Primarily face climbing past a few bolts leads to a short crack finish (fingers and hands). Single rope. 5.10d (FA: P Irby, Hickok)
Climb 2: Face climbing up to and then across a crack(slot?). Continue up to a crux move at a small bulge. Single rope. 5.11- (FA: J Hickok, Irby)
Climb 1: Mixed. Bring a few finger to hand pieces.
Climb 2: Bolted line.

Joel, If I remember correctly you were calling this crag the Witches Tongue?

Hmmm... maybe Paul was calling it Witches Tongue? I don't recall that name, but then again my memory can be fuzzy. Maybe there should be a separate area for this instead of adding it as a single route, and then the two routes can be subdivided. Maybe not... there is only two routes so far after all.

I climbed here once with Jimmie Dunn in the early 1990s. When he lived in Moab then, he climbed a bunch of the cracks on that Cutler outcrop and used to come and do laps on the best ones.
