Comments: Have looked at these rocks for years. Finally made the 5 minute drive and 10 minute approach. Tried the first route, the 5.6x. Backed off, it was sketchy, loose and beyond runout. A fall could rip all the skin off, wear layers. Made our way to the wall over the ridge. Great size routes. Bolts were massively rusted and probably wouldn't be ideal to fall on. Climbing is chill with fun moves the whole way, cobbles are solid. Linked up p2 with a 70m, could be done with a 60m as that is the length of... more >>

Comments: One of the best at the ICP for the commitment and boldness. Crux is a runout with a #2 and #4 Rp. Heads up! Exciting all the way to the anchor. If you pass the original anchor (clipping it for your follower) and lower off the anchor of Rain it's exactly 60 meters.

Comments: Thanks to the first ascent crew! What a route! I climbed this route on November 7th, it had been on my list for a few years and am glad to have busted it out with my friend Nikki.
Trip report: From the parking at 2.1 miles past the gate on the south side of the road (about 200 yards further than the black dragon turnoff if heading west). Cross the highway there. At 2.1 there is a great campsite. Hike to the drainage, follow it up until a cairn marks the right split. Follow across to the... more >>

Comments: This is the splitter looking crack on the left wall from upper park avenue parking. Mostly .75 camalot, #1 camalot. Beware: the block near the top rocks, pull gently. Kinda sandbagged for the grade, but eh, it's arches. Think light and believe its solid.

Comments: Fun route! Can not believe a route like this exists in Moab. Fun, spicy and with an insane view of all of the desert. A rim route for everyone. Wish there were more of these. Good job guys.

ended up linking the first two pitches with a 70 meter rope, skipped draws, had many double length runners. not recommended, but you can rap with one 70. 3 raps.

Comments: climbed the first pitch. fun climbing, bolts are in very odd places, wouldn't help much. 40 foot runout to the anchors from the last bolt... wonder if a bolt fell out... most bolts in the area move. should have used 1/2" x 4 RAWL instead.

Comments: Finally ticked this cool looking tower. I parked at the naked women petroglyph, hiked 4 miles all the way around the bend, it's further than you think, then hiked half way back on the top. Made my way down into the canyon, felt way the hell out there. It's really short and I brought way to much gear. I rope soloed it, brought a #2,#3 camalot for the anchor at the bottom, worked my way up the OW, the then placed a .3 C3, clipped the bolt and was at the top. Other towers in the ar... more >>

Comments: went up this tower yesterday, aid solo. 20 something pins and bolts get you up to the last free sandy move. The anchor looks good, bring cord just incase. fun quick route if you have a few hours.

Comments: classic line. Thank you Kyle!
bring a blue alien, #4 new camalot, #2 camalot, #.75 camalot.
you'll be psyched.
Don't screw with gear at the crux, just SHOOT UP!

Comments: It's only R if you can get the first bolt clipped and if it holds. otherwise it's RR... like in, way bad fall.
First bolt, clip after the crux, 5/16ths button head, rusted and not trust worthy. second and third bolts are quarter inch spinners. it's cool, do it if you're motivated!
