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

Description 

Fearless is the prominent dihedral just to the right of Suzi Has No Choice (5.8+) and 100 yards to the right of Putterman's Big Toe (5.9). The first 30 feet is a 5.8 hands corner that gains a small ledge, also the top of Suzi Has No Choice (which comes in from the left). Fearless continues on C2 aid up the dihedral, mostly in the quarter-inch to half-inch range. At about 85 feet, lean right into a short .5-1 inch splitter to reach the 4-pin anchor. Rappel 100 feet to ground. DON'T BRING A HAMMER! This route went clean on the first ascent without much trouble at all, no need to change that!

Protection 

1-2.5 inches for the 5.8 start. For the aid, bring MANY cams in the .25 to .75 range, plus a handful of stoppers. A wired hex or two also comes in handy.

There is now a two bolt anchor above the 5.8 section on 1st pitch.

Not an aid climber but would like to give pitch 2 a try next time. The first pitch is stellar and a great line for those with little trad leading experience.

I climbed this again on 10/24/13; there was nothing on the anchor bolts atop P1. I threaded one piece of black webbing and attached a quick link for rappel. This was meant as a temporary descent anchor - PLEASE DO NOT TRUST THIS ANCHOR WITHOUT ADDING TO IT.
