Another weird geologic wonder in Utah.... I'd never seen/heard of this before. I'll add this to my list of places I still need to see in Utah... it is still long, even after 15 years here!
It is incredible. I was lucky enough to have found out about it before we went to Escalante.
Good shot Matt. Are those Moki steps cut in the rock on left at the bottom? Did you go down in?
There are some Moki steps on the vertical walls of this geologic wonder. However there is no way we could have went in. One needs very good rappelling and ascending gear to get in and out. We didn't have that stuff so we overlooked it from the rim. It really is huge.
Not too hard to get in on the Moki steps - they're at the far left of the bowl in this photo. The most inconvenient part is there's almost nothing to tie off on nearby - you need a partner to belay you down the 10 ft drop and back up.
Steve, Very interesting. I didn't know that.
I hope to go back here sometime and give it a second look. Thanks

Great Place, i like it.
My boys, 12 and 17, climbed in and out unaided. There is a small bolt someone set into the rock. I tied off with paracord and webbing to help me get to the steps. The downclimb is the only tricky part. Climbing out is quite easy.
No idea why this place isn't famous. It is an amazing site.
