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


Begins as tips gradually going through all the sizes passing through some slightly sandy rock. Near the top the crack turns into easy OW for a body length before climbing into a bombay slot with an old drilled angle. A cool, funky sequence leads out right to the anchors. Be mindful of the faded petroglyphs near the base of the route.


Taste of Venom is located at the first switchback on the Poison Spider Mesa Trail, roughly 300 m from the trailhead. With good clearance its possible to drive nearly to the base of the climb, otherwise park at the trailhead and walk up. ToV is the splitter crack on the left.


Double set of cams from tips to #4 Camalot, A quickdraw.
