Access Issue: Raptor Nesting Climbing Avoidance Areas Details
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


Start with thin, bouldery moves to thin hands in an acute flare. Pull a roof, and follow a splitter that starts thin hands and turns to sustained big hands/fists. This classic challenges you on a variety of sizes and techniques, plus it's ultra sustained.


Have a Heart Donna is the left-most (as far as I know) climb on the Pistol Whipped wall. Walk about 200 yards past Hijinx in the Desert on a faint trail. The climb starts atop a small rise.


Single set 3/8" to 3/4". Doubles to 3" and (3) 3.5" pieces wouldn't go unused. (1) #4 Camalot (optional).


i think the small pillar at the bottom shifts! Nov 18, 2009

I felt that I would have rather brought several (3?) new #4 Camalots and just a single #3 Camalot for this climb. #3 Camalots seemed fairly tipped out to me and 4's fit in ideally for last 40 feet or so. As it was I walked my single #4 most of the way, leaving behind tipped out 3's periodically. Great climb, great roof. Oct 11, 2014
