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

The subtle right-facing corner with a small roof at the top in the middle of the southwest facing section of Abraxis. Straightforward corner climbing gives way to inventive arete pinching, steep jugs, and jamming to the anchor. A very unique route on exceptional Navajo sandstone.

Location

The fourth route from the right at Abraxis.

Protection

Mostly fingers and up to #2 camalot. A nut might be advisable at the crux.

Exceptionally cool and original movement for a desert crack! Possibly my favorite single pitch .11 I've done in the Moab area. Get on it! Bring many BD .5s and .3s. A BD 3 fits perfectly in the pod about a third of the way up the crack. A 2 is too small. Dec 20, 2016
