The crux of Desp-Arete. Jake sending.
|RAIN AND WET ROCK The sandstone around Moab is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. MORE INFO >>>|
A thuggy little climb with a puny name. Start on the arete making some scary moves to get to the high first bolt. Easier climbing along the arete gains a slab and a long runout to the second bolt where the angle of the rock kicks back to vert. A few moderate moves ensue, using the arete and edges on the face. The climbing gets harder at the 4th bolt with a cool arete slapping sequence. Clip the last bolt and manage the poor feet to climb to the anchor.
Located one route to climbers left of Man After Midnight. The start is usually pretty bushy. Look for a well bolted black arete.
