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


If facing the buttress, it's left of Brother From Another Planet. Start on top of some stacked blocks and climb hands in a right-facing flake system.

Interesting route. The loose blocks are kind of spooky until you get to the hand crack above. I misjudged and brought #2 Camalots for the hand crack. #3 Camalots recommended.

Decent enough warm-up but the start is kinda thought-provoking loose blocks until you get into the splitter.

We found this climb while exploring the Fin, but couldn't find it in the book. If anyone knows what it is it would be great to try and solve this mystery!
