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

There are 3 or 4 routes on this heucoed wall, which is just off the dirt road. From the car, you strain your neck as you look up this featured cliff and see anchors and a few slings tied off in hollow heucos. The 3 routes listed in Eric's Desert Rock III are (left to right) Vivarium (5.11b), Adrenaline (5.10d), and Earl Grey (5.10b/c). Jim Beyer soloed these routes in January of 1997.

Location

Right off the road , on the left, 2.9 miles up Kane Springs Canyon. (1.1 miles past Kane Springs)

Protection

Some cams in heucos, bolts here and there and slings to tie off hollow heucos.

This rock is dicey, and the pro is suspect because of the rock quality. The climbing is steep, the holds big, and the rock has a hollow not-to-be-trusted feeling to it. Cool climbs , but I wouldn't want to take a leader fall on any of these climbs. Probably best to be solid at the grade of these climbs. The climbs are so cool looking, and so close to the road; it's hard to drive by and not want to hop on these climbs. Jun 15, 2007
