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

Finger crack in left-facing corner with a couple of roofs to ascend. The crack starts with off fingers and moves to tips at the top. There's some scumming and mantles to be had on this thing to make it a little more than your typical layback and/or jam in a corner crack.

Location

Walk to the far left of the Petrified Hornet Wall, perhaps 100 yards or more left of Crescent Corner, Petrified Hornet, etc. (where the trail comes up). Look for a finger crack in a left-facing corner with an anchor easily visible from below. You have to scramble up some ledges to reach the base. Just to the right, on the same ledge system, is The Buzz, a 50 foot 5.11.

Protection

Several small cams from tips to off finger size (.3 to .75 Camalots).

This is a good little route but it ain't 5.10! A couple grades harder than Heinz 58 for example. Mar 29, 2015
