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


Upping the ante on an already wild tower climb, this thin crack to bolted stemming corner requires the full range of techniques. A short bit of interesting 5.11 crack climbing ends with a long move to good holds and the beginning of the face and stemming cruxes. There are hard moves at almost every bolt culminating in some very delicate opposition and a hugely wide stem to gain a horizontal crack and the belay ledge.


Located directly below the two-bolt anchor of the first pitch of Happy Hunting Grounds on Warrior Tower in Long Canyon.


Ten quickdraws, one set of nuts, and a single set of cams to #2 camalot. The first few cam placements off the ground are a bit tricky and in slightly soft rock.
