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 majority of this route is handcrack. There are a couple of wider pods and one section of tight-hands. Higher up there is a smaller crack out to the left that can be used. Good route, lots of fun.

Location

Starts on the left side of the buttress. Route begins on the face to the right of Elbow Vices, down near Think Pink.

Protection

Green to Gold Camalots should do it. A #3 Camalot could be nice to protect a wide pod higher up.

Great jams that are varied, somewhat of a novelty in the creek. Dec 22, 2015

easier than elbow vices to the left. good warmup. You can lower with a 60m, so definitely not 120 feet long. May 26, 2011

Called 10+ in the book, climbs more like 10-. Great route and good for warmup too. Mostly #2s with pods and good options for feet if you don't want to jam it straight up the whole way. Oct 16, 2009

Agreed. This is mostly hands, but the pods make this climb a challenge. The escaping the final pod involves some tenuous face moves off to the left before pulling back right. Nov 26, 2007
