Access Issue: Raptor Nesting Climbing Avoidance Areas 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
Access Issue: See main page for raptor info. Details

Description

Splitter, overhanging .75" crack. I put an anchor on this but could barely toprope the moves so I lured Didier up there and he sent it after about 6 tries over a few days. Didier disappeared into a Christian commune two years later. I sent it 7 years later!

Location

Look for the amazing overhanging splitter on the right side of the main alcove, past Time, Dancing Queen. Flat area in front of angled boulder. Slab start.

Protection

One or two .3 Camalots. Five or six .4 Camalots.
