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


Hail Mary is a two pitch variation to Fine Jade, but not nearly as good as the latter, although the start of it is very promising.

Follow pitch one of Fine Jade but belay before the standard belay - basically step left to a ledge with bolts after pulling the first pitch crux overhang.

Pitch one of Hail Mary face climbs off the belay past three bolts. It is a hair runout, but the bolts are good and the climbing is really fun. Turn the arete past the second bolt, then up to a third. Here the climbing deteriorates dramatically in quality (poor rock). Belay at an obvious ledge below a long left-facing corner shared with Find Shade.

Pitch two takes this corner (10d moves up high) to the belay below above the crux pitch of Fine Jade.


A couple quick draws and the standard Fine Jade rack.
