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

Description

A very good fist crack with a 8-10 foot 4-5" section at the top (sporting a few helpful edges). Not quite as clean as the superb "unnamed" just to the right, but well worth it. A short ways up and left from the parking area--look for "unnamed", which is the prominent, super-clean and splitter corner about 50 feet high--this is the next corner left.

Protection

3.5-5" (one 5" piece at the top). Easily top-roped as well, after leading the Unnamed just to the right.

2 x 3 and 2 x 4 will do it. Key, rank the 4 Camalots on the right side. Jul 8, 2002
In an announcement that will surely rock the climbing world to it's knees, this is NOT Dawn of an Age!!!! It's located about 0.3 miles before the Blue Gramma parking area, on the southerly side of the prow, in a left-facing corner.

This route is really good though - no disrespect intended. It's just that ever since I did the FA of D of an A, it's been mis-located.

That buttress has three, closely spaced towers on it - I just climbed them with a friend after - like all Creek climbers - seeing them for years on the drive in. I just wrote them up and called it Three Towers Buttress - I'm adding Dawn of an Age there as well. It's fun - go do it! Apr 3, 2015
