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


Find this route toward the right-hand side of the developed area of Blue Gramma Cliff, just to the left of some large petroglyphs, in a sandy, light-colored section of rock. Just to the right of said petroglyphs is the route Moon Goddess Revenge, a more alluring flip-flop dihedral.

Petrelli Motors, a relatively short climb (60'), starts in a sandy tips-to-first-knuckle crack. Place a few TCUs in the start and move up through the crux to where the the rock becomes slabby, but more solid. A few move moves take you to the second section on some soft footholds (trust them?) where you can stick in a few more cams and go for the anchors.

The route is worth doing if you are there and are ready to pack it up, but is certainly no destination-maker.


Small cams and TCUs , mostly 0.4 - 0.75" with a few pieces up to good hand size.

This was my favorite climb at IC. So much fun and great bouldery moves. I made it super exciting by not bringing enough small cams. Apr 19, 2006

The Bloom guidebook is off on the sizes for this route. I think he recommends .5"-2.0", but there's nothing larger than a 0.75 (green) camalot, and that's in the first 15' of the route. All small stuff after that. Nov 14, 2006

I absolutely love this route and it's one of my all time favorites. Perfect fingers - must have climbed this 5 or 6 times. Jun 1, 2009
A good pitch. Rope grooves make good side pulls for the last move! Jun 11, 2009

Great fingers near the bottom. There's cool petroglyphs to the right of this climb but just a little further to the right, and up a bit high, there's life-sized petroglyphs of three people. Really cool! Jun 2, 2012

Great finger climb. Boulder start and a few lay back moves in the sequence. May 6, 2013

Perfect fingers all the way for someone with medium size hands. Mostly 0.4-0.5 size. Could use 0.75 near the upper mantle parts. Dec 1, 2016
