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

Description 

Cruise up to the base to the large flat area and find a couple high bolts that lead into the obvious crack system that splits the tower (big roof).

First pitch is the crux with a possible 30+ foot groundfall if the string of #1 Peckers blows.

Bust through the choss into better rock and find the bolted belay on a ledge.

Pitch 2 goes up and attacks the roof using the right thin crack. Cams in soft rock leads upward. Pull the roof to better rock and belay at the notch.

Protection 

10 #1 Peckers
8 #2 Peckers
5 #3 Peckers
triple rack of cams from Aliens to #5.
(2) #5s
