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


I don't know the name or FA, any info would be welcomed. This climb is mostly OW. It starts with wide hands to fist and goes to a chimney before reaching a huge ledge to belay a second. Depending on your OW ability you may need more or less gear, but the last 35 feet or so are protected by a #6 BD or Friend.


From were you park go under the gate and walk along the fence staight to the wall. The climb shares anchors with a climb to the right (rating unknown) and is just right of a fist crack that may have anchors.


We used BD camalots. Sizes were #3(4), #4(4), #5(2), and at least one #6. Two bolt belay/rap with webbing can be backed with a #2. 2 60m rope rap, or one 70m rope.
