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


A very big dose of calcite makes for engaging 5.9 corners on the first two pitches. The Empirical Route tackles the right facing corner separating the Rectory from the Nuns. The third pitch climbs rotten Wingate on the north side of the Rectory to the summit.


Far left side of the west face of the Rectory. The first route right of Where Have the Wild Things Gone?


Double set of cams to #3 camalot with a set of nuts for the calcite corners.
