  • Portions of Reservoir Wall are on private land and should not be climbed. MORE INFO >>>
  • RAIN AND WET ROCK The sandstone around Moab is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. MORE INFO >>>

  • Description 

    Short route and short crux with a bad size.

    A thin hair harder than Middle Crack. (11d/12a)

    Funky face moves with thin pro to a flare and splitter fingers which starts out perfect but gets loose quickly...Keep your muscles tight! (12a/b)

    Protection 

    Blue - Yellow Aliens are nice at the start, (2-3) Purple - Green Camalots

    At the crux of this climb there is a terrifying set of 1/4" deep track marks in the crack where a cam pulled out.

    Why this gets low stars is beyond me . . . the finish is a combination of bouldering, rattles, and pure power. One of the better finger cracks in the area!

    Anchors are all steel now.

    The crux is really steep, very rattly, and super burly. My friend barely scraped by the crux with feet skating. Using some of the face features around the crux helped tremendously.
