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


Coyote Essence is a good short 5.11 with all sizes represented. It is the most obvious right facing dihedral encountered when the approach trail meets the cliff. It is a few hundred feet to the left of Coyne Crack Simulator. About ten feet of liebacks take you up a widening crack that opens up to thin, then good hands. The crack becomes a little varied just before reaching the anchor.


A double set of Camalots .4 - 3 should be adequate. Extra .5 to 2 would sew it up.


Anchors on this got cleaned up and beefed up last year. Thanks to climbing magazine's ARI.

That slight pod 2/3 up is NOT the sweet rest that it appears to be! Jun 11, 2009

The crux of this line is holding onto the layback long enough to get to where *you* can get solid jams.
