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

Tight fingers lead over a couple blocky bulges. Gain another varied crack that ranges from big hands to very tight hands. Was a little sandy, but will clean up with more ascents. Still a quality route despite the little bit of sandiness.

Location

Around the west side of the cliff; left of Solo West and right of Hair and Roses. Plaque at bottom of route. Start is characterized by less than vertical tight finger crack immediately right of another widening short and steep crack.

Less than 60m to ground.

Protection

0.5 to 3.5 inch (double set is fine, you will have extra gear)

You definitely don't need anything bigger than a #2 Camalot for this route. I would bring Green Aliens through a #2, heavy on the .75 size. May 11, 2016

This was great! Some stemming, some strenuous laybacking with fingers/tips only, then rests. There were 3 distinct rests throughout the route which made an onsight possible for me. I am not a strong splitter climber, so I love finding these fun varied routes! Highly recommend! Nov 13, 2018
