Access Issue: No Toilet Facilities! Raptor Nesting Climbing Avoidance Areas - In Effect March 1st 2021 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

Description

The route for which the wall was named and for good reason. Named (i'm guessing) for beautiful streaking on the wall to the right. Because of its location it is often (always?) sandy and this makes your life harder. Great shade climb but not much else nearby. Steep !!

Begin on typical broken, ledgy terrain and then launch into a great hands corner through a roof. Above the roof the crack thins from 2.5 friends down to green camalots. Milk a rest in a pod with hands before the thin, hard ending (yellow-blue metolius).

Shade Beta: If you do this climb first (and are slow and lazy about it) the area facing the road where most of the climbs are will begin to get shade.

Location

Way out right, just when you think you have been sent out to hunt snipe.

Protection

3 each from #2 Cam down to #2(yellow) metolius. A smaller piece or two may be helpful if the last few feet shut you down.
