Fun at the roof!

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


Lt. Uhuru climbs the left facing corner left of Black Uhuru. Like Black Uhuru, Lt. Uhuru is mostly laybacking and jamming between good stances. The significant difference is the short corner roof at about 80 feet. If you are like me and hang out beneath the roof for a couple falls the end isn't bad, otherwise you may need some juice to get to the anchor. Note, the roof may be a little sandy, and something crumbled under my feet at one of the other stance and my belayer had to dodge.


The left facing corner left of Black Uhuru.


The anchors are at a full hundred feet, and consist of tat, so it may be wise to bring some new webbing along. The corner is mostly 1.5 friends.

much fun - the lower laybacking is just as nice, and little more sustained, than Black Uhuru.

a little more gear beta for those interested - lower laybacking section takes .75 Camalots (i used four), and the crux roof sews up with #1 Friend/.5 Camalots/orange metolius (i used one of each). other than that, bring singles from yellow metolius to #2 or #3 Camalot. as a side note, the anchors are still bogus tat - probably the same stuff Brian mentions in his description.
