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

This was the first route done on the Tombstone Butte. The first pitch is the crux, where some overhanging boulder moves lead to the start of a great hand crack. The 2nd pitch follows the crack as it gets wider to a stance where the angle kicks back. An easy scramble leads to the top...cool summit

Location

Striking crack system up the North corner of the butte.

Protection

Standard desert rack with a few extra hand & fist sized cams
