Climb up the center of the slab past five fixed anchors to a bolted belay. It looks thin but the low angle makes it possible.


Located about 60 feet left of Baby Blue just left of a deep sandy recess. It starts behind some bushes up a large fin like protrusion. The route climbs up the slab in the middle of the fin.

This was my first lead climb. My buddies didn't know that and it was a little nerve racking, but it is a fun climb and I think not a bad intro to smearing on sandstone.

Called Snake Slab in the new Moab guide [2011]. Super fun climb but strong for an 8. Pretty positive holds going to first bolt, leading to a slabby finish. Apparently I made it harder by working the side of the arrete, missing a face move that unlocked it [somewhere by the 2nd bolt]. Highish first bolt and classic sand stone moves make this a great Moab route.

There is a good large to medium nut placement on the below and left of the first bolt. Put a long sling on it to minimize rope drag above.

Pretty fun, I had a little sketchy start, but it was alright. It's a great practice for footwork.

I thought this was called 'Snake Slab'. Not too bad, actually.
