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

Description

The plaque at the base identifies this route, it is approximately 50 yards to the right of where the west trail meets the wall. A loose (welcome to the desert) bouldery start gets your attention before standing on a ledge that will put you into a nice thin hands crack. The crack slowly opens up to hands, and toward the top where it gets to that bigger than hands, smaller than fists size, some face holds appear to save the day. This was a fun route, though I think the bouldery start scare people. A puppy crawl in from the side can side step the looseness. Again, it's great route.

Protection

A wide array of protection ranging from #1 to #3.5 Camalot exist. It seems about 5 of the #1s is the max you will need of any given piece, with only 2 of the #3.5. A small TCU can protect the boulder problem start, but it would likely blow out if anyone bigger than Tom Thumb whipped on it.

Great climb! Definitely 10+ for the tricky moves off the deck. Maybe 10+ for big hands up in the tight section of the crack too. I felt comfortable and safe with a green #0 C3 protecting the opening moves; good rock and a nice constriction to keep it in there. Jan 11, 2012

to avoid scary ground fall on the way down from catsup i traversed the ledge and placed a piece high to get started on the weird bouldery start Jan 25, 2010

i LOVED this route!! but, for female or small hands be prepared for the crux to be much higher up. For this hand size the route starts with a super-sweet but slightly insecure bouldery/balancy start then you'll find the crack that started perfect hands, then cupped, then fists and slightly bigger (I think at a couple points i threw in a forearm) for me which made it a way different climb for me than the fellas i was with :)

enjoy, very fun! Dec 2, 2009

This is a very good pitch with nice variation from thin hands to big hands,a great warm-up. Nov 13, 2006
For folks with big hands, the short stretch of crack that leans left about half way up the route will be the crux. The crack necks back down to a #2 Friend after being Red Camalots for a while. If #3 Friends are good hands for you, this route will feel harder than 5.10.

The crux is short though, with a decent rest after it. Mar 9, 2005

Best warm up at the Cat Wall.

My friend fell on a blue alien protecting the face move off the ground. Conclusion: it's solid and will hold 160 pounder. Nov 11, 2003
