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 is a cool climb, in a beautiful place. This is also a 5.12 free climb ( The late Earl Wiggins, Katy Cassidy, Peter Gallagher, Feb., 1988.) This climb follows a singular crack system to the top; an obvious right facing crack system. The first pitch is fingers (aid for us) ,and the 2nd pitch is O Wth (5.11...aid for us). I don't think there is a very good stance between pitches....maybe a hanging belay? The wide section is quite long.

Location

Out by the airport, drive on the 4WD dirt road past Echo Tower (seen from the road,...up to Monitor Butte (It's the one on the left.)

Protection

3 sets cams, extra 1 1/2 amd 2 cams. 2 sets of TCU's. Lots of extra big cams.
