  • Raptor Closure 2016: Three Penguins 2016 Raptor Closure: All climbing routes on the Three Penguins are temporarily closed due to presence of raptors displaying breeding behavior. Check status and details at: nps.gov/arch/planyourvisit/roc... -Read about Anchor Replacement and Restrictions in Arches National Park
  • RAIN AND WET ROCK The sandstone around Moab is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. MORE INFO >>>

  • Description 

    Climb the slab left of science friction, past 9 bolts, with an easy runout to the anchors. Name came from the melanoma knobs you encounter on the route. Less bolts, than the overgraded, over bolted other routes on the sunshine slab. Fun, clean, well protected slabbing..rare for arches.

    Protection 

    9 bolts, to a two bolt anchor. Double rope rap.
