RAPTOR CLOSURES: please be aware of seasonal raptor closures at the Cat Wall and Reservoir Wall. They occur annually from March 31st until August 31st. *Due to the federal hiring freeze in agencies such as the BLM of Monticello, no official closure for 2017 has been issued and the laws which have been put in place in previous years are not being enforced. Please, for the sake of fragile desert ecology, DO NOT CLIMB at stated walls. These raptors return to the same nesting sites every year to raise their nestlings.
Begin with a boulder problem start protected by tiny cams to get off the ground. The meat of the climb is the 25 foot middle section where the crack widens from tips with decent feet, to fingers with crappy feet. As with most of the classic Indian Creek finger cracks, I found the crux to be actually getting in some kind of stance to place gear.
