Goodbye Cruel World. Hello pumped forearms.

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


The clean, black left-facing corner just opposite the Schoolmaster.


A few 0.5 Camalots and blue TCU's, but mostly 0.4 Camalots/yellow TCU's (6 or 7 will sew it up).

This is the best climb I've done at The Wall. I found the big piece recommended to be unnecessary. Light is right on this awesome route.

Totally amazing climb. You will learn if you have your first knuckle layback technique down or not.

Superb shortie route. I found 4-5 orange metolius protected the crack above the rest, while yellow were slightly tipped.

This route is too locker to be 5.12.....i sent it onsight after 7 other pitches.....continous but more like 11c....Dancing Queen is harder for sure...great, doable OW though

With good man-size fingers and a little stemming it feels easier than 12-, still a pump fest.

On my redpoint burn a few years ago, while placing a cam near the top of the route, my feet popped and I fell at least a foot. My high, lefthand finger lock caught me though, loading the entirety of my fall on my shoulder. I hung there straight-armed for a while before realizing I was still on the wall. Finished 'er up feeling quite lucky to have escaped an injury!
