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

A beautiful corner crack starting with kneejams and handstacks narrowing to off fists before moving left out a roof with rattly fists/lieback. Then climb up a continuously narrowing crack past a good no hands rest as the crack gets smaller, shrinking to fingers and mad stemming/liebacking before clipping the high quality bolted anchor.

First Ascent is by Alf Randell.
Thankyou to wormus and Jake and Paul and Emily and others for help on the effort.
The route stoutly resisted a second ascent.
Many contestants had trouble with the knee sized crack or the roof. Finally, Juan and Chrystal sent it as a warm up for Rainbow [which is just to the left]. Aug 3, 2009
