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


This is the first route(up river) you'll come to on the river side of the buttress
Pitch one climbs a groove through a small roof(easy) past a ledge with some blocks then through an offwidth bulge.5.10
Pitch two climbs a harder chicken wing off width(#6 friend size) to even more wide but easier cracks above.5.10+(crux)
Pitch three goes through a slightly over hanging slot then follows varied cracks left to a large,cave like,chimney system.
Pitch four, walk to the back and climb 5.9 to a ledge, clip a bolt and follow the chimney to the summit.
This route is very sustained and definitely has some choss, but it has some great "tower like" climbing and will put your 5.10 ow skills to use.


If you look at the buttress from the river side the route is the left option that goes to the top.
Rappel from summit bolts to the top of pitch 2 and continue down the route.


Bring a double set of cams from a #.5 to a #6 a set of stoppers and some long runners.
Definitely bring at least two big cams!
