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

This route is listed as Unknown and is #23 in Bloom's guidebook. It is the large, left-facing flake about 30ft. left of "Trip to the Vet". The guidebook rates it as 5.11-, but it felt more like 5.10+ to me. Either way, it was enjoyable. It is a big hands crack behind a large flake. The moves were somewhat awkward and balancy, but are all there. Surprisingly pumpy.

Protection

Big hands gear, mostly #3-#3.5 camalots. Bring a few pieces bigger and smaller to supplement

It felt like 11- for me with my small hands- it was exhausting. Nov 20, 2006
