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 good route with a little of this and that. The climb starts as a left-leaning offset fingercrack for a few moves, then goes thin hands to hands. There are just a enough footholds under the left-leaning offset to keep the grade moderate and gear stances restful. The crux perhaps is an awkward move onto a shelf up top, though we cleaned this ledge to make that move more pleasant and less dangerous.

Location

About 7 meters to the right of this wall's namesake route, you will see a short, left-leaning crack with a tiny plaque at the base, which reads 'The Toss 5.10.'

Protection

Fingers to 3", a few of each. The anchors are above a ledge about 15 meters up
