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

Starts in a left facing corner and gets wider as you climb higher. Big-fingers, to tight-hands, to hands, to a pod. then climb the anchors on the wall above the pod. Pretty fun, however, short climb.

Location

The right end of the buttress. This is the first climb to the right of Battle of the Bulge.

Protection

Green to Blue Camalots. Short climb, so not much gear is necessary.

While the grade is listed as 5.10+ in the Bloom guidebook, I felt it was much eisier. More like 5.10- or 5.9 Mar 19, 2007

I've got big hands, and the beginning of this route felt solid 10+ to me... Couldn't get a decent hand jam, so just laid it back and tried not to pump out while blindly placing red camalots. Nov 26, 2007

If there's someone in your group with medium hands who's at Indian Creek for the first time...this is a nice route to let them warm up on...at least that's how I felt being a medium hand sized newbie. I liked it. There's a nice little seat at the top where you can rest while you clean the anchors too. Apr 15, 2010
I put this route up in the mid-80's, probably 1986. I named it The Mayes, after Frank Mayes, my partner who was killed in the Pinnacles in CA a few years before, when we were attempting Machete Direct, on Machete Ridge. I rated it 5.10b at the time, so 5.10- to 5.10 is probably right. Enjoy! Apr 2, 2013
