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

Description

Long climb with variety. Begin in a funky birth canal alcove with two hand cracks inside. Squirm your way through the first 10 feet and enjoy good hands to a series of ledges and stances. Stem against a secondary crack up to the wide section where a whole leg fits. It might be possible to exit via the secondary crack, but the legs are bomber if you stay right in the offwidth. A 70m rope will get you back to ground.

Location

Two routes left from Curiosity as you come up from the East parking lot of Cat Wall. There are two offwidths in right facing corners here and this is the leftmost of the two.

Protection

Two chains for anchors at top. 3x #1 at your smallest, doubles of everything bigger including 2x #5.

Definitely bring a #5 camalot or two. If you don't have one, it's possible to escape via the thin crack on the left, though it's a tough reach to the anchors. Mar 23, 2009

It looks like an OW but it doesn't climb like one. Really fun stemming and chimney style climbing. Maybe one BD#5…….
The crux is leaving the ground…… the rest is pretty easy.
Use common sense when pulling the rope!!!! For very very obvious reasons. Nov 16, 2013

There is a second set of chains in a chimney another pitch up. If you're real adventurous you can even rim out via a very runout chimney. Really cool up there! 1st pitch is just the beginning... Nov 29, 2013

My 60m rope was long enough, but it was close. Jan 26, 2014
