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 [Suggest Change]

This is an incredibly fun left-facing corner with technical and powerful moves and not many rests. It is climbed via tight fingers - tips, and stemming.

Location [Suggest Change]

Left side of the wall, past Hole in the Wall but before Crack Attack.

Protection [Suggest Change]

Mostly small gear (Blue-Yellow Aliens), can also place a couple #1 Camalots.

This is a fantastic pitch on par with many of the routes on BOTB getting 3.5 stars. Required exquisite stemming, laybacking, fingerlocking and faceclimbing skills all while placing bomber blue TCUs (need at least 5). Very sustained with some decent at best rests. Deserves classic status for the grade. Jun 2, 2008

Don't rely on aliens at the top... May 23, 2011
God i was pretty close to getting this one . The whole zippering the gear video is ridiculous. There is great blue metolius tcus,green aliens protecting the first crux where the dude fell. He must have had bad gear placements. Stem hard on this one and send! I actually got through the lower difficult stuff to a good rest....the upper crux is figuring out the gear...difficulty backs down quite a bit...but flared, softer rock is intimidating....remember to bring a set of green,red and gold camalots for the pods on this route. Wonderful climb! Oct 22, 2011

Felt a bit soft for 12. Great stemming most of the way, and great gear up high (#1 and #2 Camalots). Sure it gets thin, I even placed a slidernut, but you're above BOMBER gear and there are great footholds.

Don't be intimidated. Dec 7, 2012

Keith Reynolds onsighted this route to the hand jams before being forced to hang off a cam to clean loose rock and sand. The proper FA of the cleaned crack was shortly after completed by Beth Rodden. May 9, 2016
