Dan Hughes climbing the splitter finger crack, Imm...

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


Wow! One of the best finger cracks in Indian Creek!

Pitch 1: Short pitch, head up the face to a ledge with a single bolt belay.

Pitch 2: Splitter Finger Crack (this is what you came for!), Starts out with .3 camalots to sustained .4 and .5 camalots, save a .3 camalot for the top.

Clip the bolted anchors and check to see how much skin is left on your fingers. You can lower all the way to the ground with a 70m rope.


Located to the right of Minute Man & The Womb, look for the pillar leaning against the wall with the striking finger crack above it.


(4).3 camalots, (6).4 camalots, (5).5 camalots, (1).75 camalot.

Add a couple hand size pieces for the approach pitch

And if you're in the area, keep hiking right to find "Mother" (13-) and "Shotgun Wedding" (12+).

One of the BEST finger cracks in the creek!! Heavy on the yellow and green aliens

Much respect to Trout Man for putting the work into this crag and discovering these classic lines.
