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 is the obvious, right-facing corner between Sting and Petrified Hornet. There appears to be a second pitch...

~60 feet. Bring a couple 4's. As good, and a little harder, than it looks. Mar 30, 2015

I agree with @claramie more-or-less, cams in order for a perfect rack (all BD C4's): #1, 2x-#2's, 2x-#3, 2X-#4's

I placed everything I had #1, 2x-#2's, 3x-#3 and would easily have decked if I fell on that last #3 (which was extremely tipped-out). Do not get on this climb without at least one #4! Oct 13, 2014

short but classic and splitter. rack on here is wrong though. For the first pitch only, still take 1 or 2 x #2 camalot. 3 or 4x #3 camalot. a 3.5 camalot, and 2x #4 camalot (C4). a #5 C4 can fit in one spot also, but not necessary Oct 10, 2013

Climb the second pitch! its solid! bring 2 #5 Camalots or a #5 and #6, you can also climb it in the style of the FA and run out the offwidth section off the Crescent Crack anchors for 15 or 20 feet. Jan 7, 2010
