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


The route goes from a 24" crack down to 1/4" at the top. All sizes covered from squeeze to stacks down to tight fingers up high. The fingers is the crux, although exiting the squeeze is also hard.


a few systems right of 'pregnant woman grazing' and just left of 'Birth'


green alien through blue big bro. fixed pin protecting the exit from the squeeze. clip and lower up top.


The fixed pin was installed after two lead attempts with out it....

The gear is pretty much non-existent due to the flairing nature of the crack. A ground fall would pretty much be guaranteed if one botched the transition from the squeeze with out the pin.

Can be easily T/R'd by moving your rope from the top of Debirth. The bottom would be quite scary without some super big gear. Well done Pat. Apr 11, 2017

I have a mission; to only downgrade, on TR, Pat's routes. No Pat route is safe. The downgrading will be egregious and rampant. Jul 22, 2017
