Ed making the move around the corner.

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


Start up the slightly overhanging, right-facing corner that is mostly fingers and tight hands. Move around the corner to the left and up an offset crack in the face to a thin finish. Good fun!


Very close to where the approach trail reaches the cliff. To the right of Scarface and to the left of Big Guy.


Finger to tight hand sizes (yellow Alien - green Camalot), a few smaller cams towards the top (blue - green Alien).

I would say 2x Purple C3 and a single Green and Red C3 protect the thin sections at the top. Heart breaking finish on sweet crimps!

Not sure where Luke was getting the C3s in, but we needed brass micronuts to protect the top. Exhilarating finish!
