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


Nice and very short thin hands crack. Good intro to thin hands jamming. Would make a great warm up route.


(3) #1 Camalots or (2) #1 BD C4s and (1) #2 BD C4


The easiest way to climb this seems to be to jam your left foot while using your right foot to smear. Apr 16, 2002
A short but very enjoyable route and, as mentioned, a decent warmup for the desert...which can be difficult to find. A nice gentle intro to the desert...to bad it does not go on for another 100 feet.

Aptly named. Nearly impossible to grade due to its length. Takes 2 #1 camalots and 1 #2 camalots, or 1 #1 camalot and 2 #2 camalots. Certainly no harder than 5.9 Mar 16, 2012

This is a perfect first trad lead. Bring two #1's and also a #2 for the top. I fail to understand how a route so straightforward and no-nonsense could possibly have a plus (+) attached to the grade. This is standard 5.9 crack climbing, and if anything it should have a minus (-) due to its brevity. I'd say Short & Sweet instead of stupid, but to each their own. Sep 26, 2016
