Access Issue: 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


The Maverick is a really fun 4 pitch route. Stevie Haston freed it at 5.13a, but most climbers aid it at 5.9 C2. It goes clean very easily-don't even think about using a hammer on this line.

Pitch 1 - Climb either 5.8R or C2 to a beautiful 5.13a or C1 splitter fingercrack. 60 feet to a fixed belay.

Pitch 2 - Either climb 5.9+ directly left from the belay, or aid C1 up to a fixed pendulum point and swing left about 15 feet. Both ways reach easy 5.6 mud to a good belay ledge. 50 feet.

Pitch 3 - Climb past a 5.9- bulge to another easier bulge. 50 feet to a killer belay ledge.

Pitch 4 - Climb 5.11 or C2 for 30 feet until it is possible to start free climbing at 5.7 70 feet to the top of the spire.

1 double rope rap from the summit leads back to the land bridge.


2 sets of RPs(offsets very useful), 2 sets of stoppers, 1 set of cams to 3 inches.
