BETA PHOTO: Feeling the pod above the ledge

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


Not exactly sure of route name, but does not appear to be in Bloom. Begins with broken and slightly loose climbing for the first half, up to a rounded ledge. Immediately off the ledge work your way through a pod with only marginal hands (steep, crux) and then jam a clean, right leaning hands crack to the anchors


First route left of "The Far Left", though some routes exist even farther left on this wall. The approach trail joins the wall at these two climbs where the wall forms a corner.


Pair of rings for anchors up top. First half can take several sizes from .5 to #2 and second half takes #1 and #2.
