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


Stemming leads to a varied crack on the left wall. Cam placements can be found before reaching the first bolt. Follow the ramp and dihedral to the final sandy section below the anchor.


Just left of the 5.6 corner crack oh the left side of the slabs.


single rack camalots, .5- #3, 5 bolts, anchor

what a great route. in my humble opinion; probably the best route on the wall. way fun, varied moves. i used a small hex, a 3.5 (should have been a 3), and a .75 camalot before the first bolt. great vision on the fa. the clips are PERFECT. this thing had to be ground up. the rating is dead on. MUST DO if your up there. kudos to eric.

Very nice mixed route, particularly for beginning leaders. Requires a piece (or two) before bolts. Not too difficult, but maybe a bit reachy for vertically challenged climbers. IMHO, probably closer to 5.8...but supremely FUN!

Is the crux up high? I led all but about the last 15 feet of this climb (then traversed right to the 5.6 Corner anchors) and marked it as "5.7+ish" in my notes last October. It was definitely a fun natural line, and having its own anchors will make it much better.

This was such an amazing climb - my first Ice cream Parlor climb I believe! Everyone's beta is correct, use a .75 and 3 and you're golden. Have fun!

I like using a .75 and a .5 Camalot to protect the initial moves on this, the crack that comes in to the left of the first bolt has some scary looking fractures in it. The bolted section is harder than it looks! Grade seems spot on.

Awesome(!) larger hex placement on the left wall about 10 feet up. That and one cam in the .75-#2 range will get you to the bolts (I remember a couple placements to choose from).
