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
Access Issue: Portions of Reservoir Wall are on private land and should not be climbed. Details

Description

This stellar left facing dihedral is located about 30 yards left of Pente. This is not in the guidebook but there is a plague at the base which identifies the route. There are 5.12 routes on both the left and right of Raja. Can be done with a single 60m rope. The route starts very thin (blue TCUs) with no real feet for the first 15' : this is probably the technical crux of the route. A number of good rests are interspersed between strenous thin layback sections for the rest of the way

Protection

lots of TCUs (blue, yellow, and orange sizes), as well as a few #.75, 1, and 2s for the occasional wider parts. Basically a mix of sizes with an emphasis on TCUs

If you have bigger fingers the beginning of this route is full bore - a power liebacking sprint. My girlfriend with smaller fingers then did it and just casually hiked the beginning - she said she would comfortably solo it! A good reminder of the "individual" nature of Indian Creek grades! Otherwise this is a worthy route, with a couple of good rests. Apr 6, 2008

The rack for this: 7-8 BD .3 (or equivalent - blue metoli or green alien) pieces (half for the start, half for the finish), 3 BD .4, 1 each of .5-#3. So varied, so fun. The anchors are now nice chains on two pins and a shiny bolt. Thanks, Sam F. and ASCA! Mar 30, 2015
