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


Although on the shorter side, this is a classic warm-up route on the far left side of Scarface. Go past Black Uhuru and Lt. Uhuru and you will see it. Quick boulder start to gain a left-facing hand crack. Then #3 camalot changing corners and up to the anchor.


Far left side of scarface. left of Lt. Uhuru


2 - 3 gold camalot. 2 - 3 blue camalot.

This is a nice steep handcrack reminiscent of Wavy Gravy, if slightly less wavy. The business is steep #3 camalots- murder on those with smaller hands. Jan 3, 2012

I'm sure this sentiment has been expressed before, but... if this route was anywhere other than Indian Creek, it would be a four-star classic, especially if it was a bit longer. As it is, it stands past a bunch of other stellar climbs and doesn't get much attention at our beloved creek. Jan 9, 2012

FYI, this route is the same as the one pictured under "trading places", which seems an appropriate name for a changing corners pitch. The first comment above describes a different route, further left. Nov 13, 2016
I think this is probably a duplicate entry of the Wide Hands LF Corner that is just to the left. Would anybody be upset if I merged that route into this route? I don't think this is the same one as trading places. The photos for the Wide Hands LF Corner are slightly different than the photos for the Trading Places route.

Thanks. May 10, 2017

slim, this route should be merged with Trading Places, but it is in the right location on the wall. Trading Places is not located correctly here. Jun 6, 2017
i don't think this one is trading places. i think this one is the unknown LF changing corners big hands route that is pretty far left (which i should merge this one with). the trading places route is in the right location (but i need to move the big jon route to the right of trading places).
