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

This beautiful line starts in a left leaning crack then transitions to a right leaning crack just past the second bolt.

Location

From the Wicked Crag, hike down river through the "mud bog". Stay left and high after that until you see faint switchbacks on the right. Take this switchback down past a large boulder to a log crossing to the north side of the creek. There are 4 pretty hard looking routes before you reach this one downstream and uphill from the creek crossing.

Protection

8 or so bolts to an optional .5 cam placement (or it's a bit run out)

If this is the route I think it is, it is the finest 5.11 bolted route I have ever had the pleasure of climbing. Jan 6, 2009

I second that - seem to remember hearing the same thing from Nathan. BTW, I believe it's Madera with an A. Aug 14, 2012

Goes on gear at a stiff PG13, a definite headpoint with extremely specific gear beta including one tricky to place, but bomber, RP. To do it ground up would border on free soloing........ not recommended. Sep 18, 2015

Anyone know what the slab climb on the black panel to the right of this that finishes on an arete is called?

What about the left variation to this line? Oct 23, 2017
