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


Petrified Hornet is a good right facing corner up steep rock to an interesting top out.


0.75 to #3 Camalots.

boulder start is slightly sketchy but ok. the dihedral is #2 to #3 camalot. interesting moves to exit above the roof part (but not very hard). excellent route after the start. No more finger gear once you enter the hand crack

anchor is just above the steep roof part, but you can't seem it from the ground Oct 10, 2013
FA. Karl Kelley. While doing the FA, I accidentally pulled off a loose block and it revealed some petrified hornets, hence the name! Sep 4, 2014

Excellent climb!

Perfect rack (for the nervous leader) in order of use (all BD C4's): #0.5 (in left finger slot, emergency piece), #0.75 (after V3 opening in crack behind ledge, not visible from base), 3x-#1's, 3x-#2's, 3x-#3's, #1 (just before anchors).

If the pitch looks comfortable you can get by with: #0.75, 2x-#1's, 2x-#2's, 2x-#3's, #1. Oct 13, 2014

Cool Karl. Been wondering why the wall was named. Looks like a cool line. Sep 29, 2015

Right up there as one of the best lines at The Creek at the grade. May 3, 2018
