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

Route is on the north side of "Neighbor of Putterman". It is the first crack on your left after you pass The house Of Putterman"

Protection

Rack: hand size and #3 BD for crux. 1-4 RP's Right facing dihedral, low angle start up to vertical at crux. The route is about 50 feet it has no anchors so take RP's. Lower the follower and then throw the rope to him thru a 8 inch break in the wall behind you. Rap off his weight. rope pulls great.

Did the 9+ grunt crux. I hope I'm not actually beginning to enjoy offwidth! Next time I'll be smart and try the stemming. Apr 27, 2011
This area is dirty so be careful, but the challenge of trying to stay in the crack is wicked cool. Keep the Desert clean and untained. Oct 24, 2002
There is now a two bolt anchor. Make's for a better follow. Sep 3, 2002
A new variation of the line has been done by Mark Tjaden. When you reach the wide section on the left about 3/4 of the way up the route stay half way in it, this makes the route about a grade easier. (Stemming through the crux hands section at the top is a fun and highly recommended line.) We have also added a 2 pin anchor at the top so the rap is now straight forward. Jun 6, 2002
We added a two pin anchor with slings last week, so the rappel isn't so complicated now. Also, when you use the chimney that forms on the left wall half way up the climb, it drops the grade to 8+ or 9, something like that. Great route! Apr 1, 2002
