Access Issue: Raptor Nesting Climbing Avoidance Areas Details
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


From the end of the approach trail, head right up the hill until you see an obvious slot with a finger crack inside. There is a plaque at the base with the name. The 200 Select Indian Creek guidebook lists this as unnamed 5.10a fingers. A really fun, not too strenuous corner which gives one the option to utilize jamming, stemming, and laybacking techniques. It goes through a range of sizes so one does not need a huge number of any one size cam. The crux comes at the bottom where the crack is thin and requires thin (#0 TCU) protection. This climb makes a great "warmup" for some of this wall's more strenuous routes.


Doubles set of cams including TCUs down to #0. There is no wide stuff on this route.

Enjoyable route, but it is trickier than it looks - though still fair for the grade (10-). The crux is down low passing an awkward sloping ledge. Bring small cams from green to red alien, 2-3 #2 camelots, 2-3 #1 camelots, #0.75 camelot, and one bigger piece (#3 or #3.5 camelot) for the top. Mar 30, 2007

The name may indicate easy money! The crux is low, top of thin section where the route ledges out. Well worth climbing if visiting OMW.

awesome photo KG! This route is sweet! Tough crux down low, gravy from there, just fun hand jams all the way to the top. Oct 18, 2010

Small pro at crux, double or triple up! I used TCU purple and grey and a blue alien before pulling past the move. Apr 9, 2014
