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

A few mantles lead to the slot/chimney between the fingers. Run it out for 50' before getting in your first piece. Climb the chimney, using both pillars.

Location

Climb right up the middle... right between the lines.
I added new cord to the anchor in 10/09. Rap 80' to the deck.

Okay, that's one of the coolest features I've ever seen, yet it doesn't have a name!? Please, someone give it a great name, like "Slotzilla" or something (but not that, obviously, that's a really dumb name). Apr 17, 2014

we drove in starting from a driveway down river from moonflower then 4x4 back up following the power lines. short easy walk in flip flops to the climb. gary did a SIC job on his first gear lead. run out for sure. a fixed pin would make this thing a lot safer even though it's fairly solid in the chimney. small fingers for your first good gear and bring one 3, 4, and 5 camalot for the upper section. we replaced the webbing. two fixed pins with a quick link for the anchor. way fun and interesting climb. 5.9 Jun 21, 2012

I put in the anchor in the late 90's, someone had climbed it before and had rapped off a single piece called a "teton". It's a really cool unique climb, although I don't remember it being as hard as 5.10. I always wondered who did the 1st??? Jan 17, 2012
