RAIN AND WET ROCK The sandstone around Moab is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. MORE INFO >>>

Description 

Though Blanding is full of out-doors-people, bolted climbs seem to be rare in the immediate vicinity. Hopefully this will help some of the interested locals to find and share some places to top-rope or to bolt some new climbs.

Iron Maiden V1 5 UT : Moab Area : ... : Blanding Boulders
Like the medieval Iron Maiden, looks terrifying but is mostly for show and not actually meant to torture you. Such a great highball! Positive holds and big feet with every move.

The mantle feels very exposed as there aren't any holds over the lip, but it's quite easy....[more]   Browse More Classics in UT
