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

Description

Start just right of Keswick Lads Day Out on the north side of the formation. Watch out for weak friable rock in sections of the crack.

Pitch 1: 100' 5.7 C1Make a long reach to the first pin then aid past three bolts to a good finger sized crack. Clean aid the crack using TCU's. Pass a pod with some wide crack and a short section of easy free climbing. Continue aiding the thin crack to a bolt anchor. Pitch 2: 85' 5.8 C1Aid the hand and fist sized crack up and over the roof. After the roof make some slabby moves on slippery sandy stone before aiding one last steep section and making one more scary free move to the anchor.

Pitch 3: 100' 5.5Follow the offwidth up and left until it turns into a 4th class chimney and belay from gear near the summit.

Protection

wires and lots of tcu's and cams up to 4 inches with many extra TCU's.
