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

Beautiful bulletproof stone leads up a slab with no holds - just a water ripple here or there. If you are a slabmaster, you might dig this line.

How to find it: after coming down the chain ladder, continue on around the first buttress past about 6 routes or so.When the trail bends around to go south (upstream direction for Horse Creek), start looking for a steep slab.

Lots of difficult moves. Good luck!

a fantastic test of slab skill that starts out mellow and climaxes with thin crimps on a nearly vertical face

a classic of the style Oct 7, 2009
