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

The route starts with a short lower wall to access the nice corner above. Follow the steep corner (#1 Camalots) up through a roof, to a natural belay, just below a small pod. C1 (100')The next pitch starts with thin cams up to a really thin left arching corner. A knifeblade was placed to back up a really small nut, that ended up holding. This corner eventually leads to the awesome overhanging splitter seen from below. Follow the left, then right trending splitter to the top. C1+

Location

The route is the analog crack of "Everything's Better with Shredder" It splits the 3rd summit from the west, on the North side (facing the river). The corner is obvious, above the short approach crack, and the headwall splitter to the top can't be missed. Once on top walk the 25-30' to the other side of the tower to find the anchors set up to rap the South side (2 rope rap). This route stays in the shade most of the day.

Protection

3 sets of cams up to a #3 Camalot. 2 #4 Camalots. Set of nuts (small sizes) Maybe one extra #1 Camalots, for a total of 4. At least 1 #00 metolious.
