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 few more details: route is 100'. Gear recommended: doubles .4 - #3 camalots with a couple extra .5 and .75. Great warmup without the crowds of the easy classics further left. Apr 8, 2014

This route climbs like a bunch of Rainbow Bunnies and gigantic fossilized monsters got stuffed into the Mary Poppins bottomless bag which then inexplicably caught on fire! Radiant! Feb 27, 2017

I brought four .75's and it was great. Other recommended gear on here is good. Watch out for bad anchors, with weird hooks on the chains that steal ropes. Be very careful on top-rope and rappels. Otherwise, the many different types of crack on the climb make it a fantastic lead. Apr 23, 2017
