Another awesome 11 at this wall...

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


Slightly broken start gives way to great hands in a corner then tight hands over a roof. It'd be harder but it's got thank god finger jams exactly where you need them


Just a little ways left of Go Sparky Go


Mostly hand and finger sized gear. A blue alien keeps the start safe. The anchor was a bunch of tat pinched against the wall with washers. It's got good hangers and rings now.

Thanks for the anchor upgrade John. That was the cheapo way we used to set things up, saving on the cost of bolt hangers. Now, looking back, it seems like pennies we were saving, but back then it was a couple of burrito dinners!
