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


Climb an initial section of wide crack from #3 to #4 Camalot in size. Step left when possible to climb an easy crack in the corner underneath the roof. At the roof, go right, pulling through the first roof via a layback and then pulling through a second roof just above. Finish with good jams before a "surprise" wide section at the top. If you want to protect the wide section at the top, bring a big piece (#6 Camalot ?) or run it out until you can reach around left to place a piece in the left crack before manteling to the anchors. A good, varied climb, especially if you don't mind doing a little bit of wide climbing.


To the right of Variety Pack, Unnamed 5.10+, and Unnamed 5.10 is this obvious left-leaning wide crack with two roofs above. Starts in the crack on the face with huecos to the right of a right-facing corner system. Plaque at the base.


Double set of cams from .5 Camalot to #4 Camalot with maybe an extra in the #3 and #4 size.

Didn't find the 6 necessary...actually only took a 4.5 and placed at the first roof.. You can escape left at the top and avoid the OW and have a fun finger crack to hand jam...REALLY ENJOYED THIS ROUTE!!!!! solid 11

Not sure you'll get off this with a 60m rope. 110'?

Getting up the initial wide crack is protectable with #4 camalot and smaller. Agreed that having a #6 for the last 20 feet is very much appreciated.

For a more sustained climb, avoid the crack to the left of the wide stuff for continued rattly fists and a fun OW stembox to the roof. The left crack does protect well but be sure to extend with long runners. I had 3 BD 4s and 4 BD 3s and felt good. Also an advocate for the 6. After the roofs, you'll want some mental pro getting into the wide stuff up top. Solid 5.11 climbing; sandbag your friends.
