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 [Suggest Change]

Start with your left hand on the arete and your right hand on a small crimp. Throw up a high left foot and slap the block and stand up to better holds and top out.

A sit start adds a few grades and a star in my opinion.

Location [Suggest Change]

Located to the right of the downclimb and to the left of Block Pock

While the sit is clearly not as hard as either of the guidebooks suggests, it does (as cstorms noted) climb better. Probably more like v8 for the sit? Aug 26, 2012
