|RAIN AND WET ROCK The sandstone around Moab is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. MORE INFO >>>|
This route is located between Coyne Crack and Keyhole Flakes. I put it up in May 1999, on lead, on sight. The crux is at top and goes conservatively 5.13b/c. This route was omitted in the recent guidebooks, and is one of Indian Creek's test pieces. Fantastic finish, never done!!
It starts with an easy boulder move to an optional #5 Camalot placement leading to the meat of the route. At first a right facing corner, leading to a left-facing and thinning corner to a double bolt belay slightly left.
Between Coyne Crack and Keyhole Flakes, a very unlikely looking thin double corner.
Be ready for some thin pro. Many 0.5, thinning to 0.1 and 00.1. Tiniest TCUs on top offer dubious pro. Rollers are better. I repeated my route May 2013, and just as I was reaching the anchors, I fell unzipping one third of the pitch (scar under anchors from piece popping), a nasty forty footer. Do not do this route after it rains. Cam hooks OK on top. When sandy this climb is a 5.14.
