Orion's Bow T 5.10+ 6b+ 21 VII+ 20 E3 5b

Description

"The Bow" is one of the most anti-Indian Creek style routes in Indian Creek. Located between Blue Gramma and the Super Crack Buttress it's a two pitch slab route, established by Ed Webster and company (I believe).

The route is in the process of being re-equipped, the first four bolts are new bomber 1/2 inchers, provided by the ASCA, and the rest of the route has old 1/4 inch bolts, that could reasonably be compared to nails. We got scared and ran out of time in the spring, so we're waiting until the fall to finish the job.

Even when the bolts are bomber this is going to be a heady ride. The climbing feels like 5.11 slab and it really makes you think that this thing was probably put up before sticky rubber existed.
RAIN, WET ROCK and RAPTOR CLOSURES: The sandstone around Moab is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. Also please ask and be aware of Raptor Closures in areas such as CAT WALL and RESERVOIR WALL in Indian Creek Details
