    North Face (The Wishbone) 5.8 5b 16 VI- 15 HVS 4c A2+  UT : Moab Area : ... : The Wishbone

Even though the climb is rather short (80'), you still end up placing a lot of pieces. This is a fun climb with a short approach to the top of a seldom-visited summit....[more]   Browse More Classics in UT
