Description 

This route RULES! Pitch 1; Right facing crack system with the 5.11 lieback. (85') Pitch 2; Climb an O Wth crack past a drilled piton, then more O W crack (5.10+) to rap station. (80')


Location 

Climbs the W face of the cliff around the corner left from Sunset Tower. It's a little less than 2 miles past the main highway, after you turn onto State Highway 313, and it's on the right (north) side of the road.


Protection 

Lots of cams;...3 or 4 each of the smaller cams, (1-2"). Large cams for the O W.

This climb is fantastic; one of the best crack pitches near Moab, and could hold it's own at Indian Creek. I tried to lead this pitch, but didn't make it. Greg Epperson tried to lead this pitch, but didn't make it. Kyle Copeland took a couple of big drags from his camel cigarette, grabbed the rack, cranked into the lieback position, and SENT! Kyle, (once again), saved the day. We had a great time. This is an endurance climb that requires strength, stamima, technique, and a cool head. It's awesome.

Take two 5 and 6 Camalots to make the top pitch feel more comfortable but it's doable with one apiece. Two each of smaller cams protected the first pitch just fine. A good cooler weather climb, you might expect a climb like this at the Creek.
