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
Access Issue: Portions of Reservoir Wall are on private land and should not be climbed. Details

If you walk all the way down to climb Excuse Station you might as well climb this. I thought it was really fun, much different from your average corner crack lieback-athon. Sep 28, 2011

Maybe I did it wrong? No way is this any kind of 5.10. How the hell is 15 degree overhanging green camalots anything below 5.11? I Onsighted both, but this one felt a half a grade harder than Excuse Station to me. Mar 26, 2012

Sandy at the top like Excuse Station. Also, significantly harder than ES. Felt like solid 5.11 to me! Oct 20, 2014

Quality route well worth doing.

Seems a sandbag for 5.10+, harder to me than 5.11- routes like pente or lift kit. Not as sustained as excuse station, has more useful rests, but two crux sections seem harder. And the right wall is pretty radically overhanging!

70m Rope super stretcher rap to the ground, but easily reaches the big ledge at the start of excuse station. Be careful. Oct 20, 2014
