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

Description 

This is the first route that is climbable on Convoy Wall. It is the right side crack of a detached pillar. Climb fingers to hands and finish in the wide stuff. On the opposite side of the pillar is a 2-pin anchor on the main wall. Rapping this line will put you down the O.W nightmare called "Merge".

Protection 

Fingers to hands to off-width, start small dirty and end wide and clean. Cams 1 each #.5 , #.75, #1, #3, and #4. With the crux being right off the ground this is a good route to warm up on.
