Lizard rock summit at sundown.

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

Description 

Follow the thin hands-to-finger crack on the left side of the face. The initial crack yields a medium nut placement if you need it. When the crack runs out, do cool face climbing moves on edges and cobbles to a bolt. From here, move up and right to join the standard route at the obvious flake at the start of the summit overhang. Sling the horn with a long runner, then climb jugs up the overhang to the summit mantel and a good belay.

Very good rock for the Fishers!

Protection 

Bring medium nuts for the initial crack, a quickdraw, and a long runner.

you can get a #1 camalot above the bolt between the flake and the formation, and a #3 camalot a bit higher too

You could probably put an Ice Screw in all that poo between the bolt and the horizontal crack
