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


A splitter, crescent-shaped OW into squeeze chimney. Quite clean, as it's been water-worn over the eons, somewhat like the Drainpipe in Donnelly.

A couple butterflies lead to stacks/kneelocks and into the crux stretch of chickenwings and heel-toeing; the squeeze gradually widens and you can fully burrow in before finishing up an unexpected handcrack on the left wall to the belay ledge. A great blue-collar trainer!


About 5 minutes to the left of Bunny Slope. No plaque, but anchors are visible and the route will be obvious from the pictures.


(1)#2,old #4, new #5, new #6 Camalots, blue big bro, slings. Chain anchors.
