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

Description 

Start with your left hand on the arete and your right hand on a small crimp. Throw up a high left foot and slap the block and stand up to better holds and top out.

A sit start adds a few grades and a star in my opinion.

Location 

Located to the right of the downclimb and to the left of Block Pock

While the sit is clearly not as hard as either of the guidebooks suggests, it does (as cstorms noted) climb better. Probably more like v8 for the sit?

V8 or so seems about right for the sit.. definitely not V10.. or V9
