Access Issue: Raptor Nesting Climbing Avoidance Areas Details
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


This takes a right-facing corner just left of The Monk. The corner has a step in it half way up. Slightly loose and a bit of thrutching near the top.


Mostly hands, some fist-size pieces too.

Our rack: 1 #1 (to back up double pin anchor for TR), 4 #2, 3 #3, 1 #4, 1 #4.5, 1 #5 Probably overkill, but you won't have to walk anything. Beta hint: layback the wide sections. Oct 22, 2007

Cool route. First section is similar to Amaretto Corner P1 on Supercrack. If the biggest piece yo take is a #4 C4 then yo could hit the ledge if you blow the moves at the top wide section. Although probably completely unnecessary I took a #5 and a #6 and was happy to have them up high. CL Oct 16, 2009

Had fun on this one. Was told hands to wide hands. For the most part, this is pretty accurate, lots of blues and yellows. Then it got wider... And wider. My single #4 made the end pretty spicy. Bring a 5 and, if you have it, an extra 4.

Pretty great climb, though. Didn't wear a shirt and my shoulder and back got pretty thrashed on the end. Long and good climb. Apr 20, 2012

Guide book is way off on this one (bloom 1st edition) it calls for one #4. To properly protect you would need a 4, 5, and 6 or you risk a fall onto a ledge 60ish feet up. Would have been better with the proper gear. Oct 22, 2012

I whipped on the sandy offwidth a few months back. Almost decked. Scary shit. Lay back this thing and bring a #6 Jun 25, 2013

I agree with the previous comments. I found the top to be really sandy and hard to get my body in. I would take at least a 4,5 and a 6. Nov 29, 2015

The Bloom IC guide has the gear listed wrong - the #3's are listed twice and there is no mention of a #6. This route has a few spots wider than a #4 - we found 2 #5's handy and a #6 at the very top seemed a requirement for me - was glad we had one. Nov 1, 2016
As others have mentioned, the guidebook's gear recommendation seems flawed, perhaps it is based on old camalot sizing? In modern sizes the route runs 2 #2, 4 #3, 2 #4, 1 #5, 1 #6 (spooky top without the 6). The OW pod may be a little dusty, but it's great fun! Apr 1, 2018
