|RAIN AND WET ROCK The sandstone around Moab is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. MORE INFO >>>|
A short finger crack leads to a cool stem box protected by #1 Camalots. The crack gets wide for a little bit after the stem box ends and then pinches back down to hands at the top. A little sandy but well worth doing.
Way around the left side of the Maverick Buttress, about 60' to the right of Quickdraw.
Doubles from .5 to #4. One or two extra #1's.

Is this route really only 115 feet? This is what the guidebook says, but we were up there with only a single 70m rope today, and it looked at least 150', so we did not try it. Looks cool though.

A 70 m works fine to lower off this route. It was very sandy when I did it so it didn't live up to its 4-star rating. Unless you have huge hands, I'd call it offwidth for most of the upper crack past the chimney/stembox. I used a new 5 camalot and had to do some hand stacking. Several 3s and 4s are useful too.
