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

Fairly sustained w/ no obvious crux, points to ponder include: figuring out what technique to use in the dihedral, passing a small overhanging pod, then fighting the pump for the last 1/3 of climb

Location

Far left Sparks Wall, just left of a large freestanding column, beginning on a 10ft. high ledge, is a slightly overhanging handcrack in a right facing dihedral. The dihedral opens up after 65 feet to a flat face and a 25 ft section of slightly overhanging perfect hands to an anchor

Protection

BD #1 at bottom then #2's for 80 ft. A few #3 Friends also came in handy.

yeah, i think you're right. kind of a dusty flare, but with good hands in the back. i don't remember it being super far to the right of critics choice (ie closer to sparks than CC). kind of surprised it ended up on the sparks wall (?). Mar 9, 2010
