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


Nina is a 65 ft splitter in the back right corner of the Shipyard canyon as you approach from the road. It sits between Electronic Battleship (10.c), and Torpedo Bay (12.c), both of which are obvious cracks with anchors. Hike out of the draw and contour North along the cliff base, you are sure to find these three routes. Nina begins in a wide crack in a left facing corner. Jam fists to wide hands through a bulge for about 15 ft and climb good hands through the face above for another 25 ft. The crack gradually thins towards the top and is difficult thin hands at about 50 ft. It thins to fingers or liebacking for 10 ft (crux) and finishes on some good face holds below the anchor. I would give this route three stars if it were longer, but then again, I was glad that it was over when it was. Those with big mitts may be reduced to crying ninas pequenas on this one.


Size #0.75 to 3.5 Camalots with extra 1s and 2s, 0.75 at the crux.
