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


Handcrack in a right-facing corner to the left of a fingercrack (Heinz 58 5.10+). Good warmup route.

I thought this was very fun and pretty easy--a nice relief from the relentless splitters at the creek!

The crack in the dihedral nearly ate our rope when we pulled it from the anchors. Make sure to stand well to the right of the anchors when pulling your rope. Also might want to pull the right side of the line as well.

Perhaps the best 5.9 at the Creek, although the awkward start will give many 5.9 leaders a hard time. Not much of a warm-up for the crag classics, but a great option for beginners.
