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 first pitch is the scary one due to loose rock that is sometimes hard to protect. The "real" crux, however, is getting up enough nerve to make all of the leaps from Sailor to Sailor and back! A whole lot of fun and magnificent 360 view!

Location

This route is on the west side of the formation just a few feet north of the middle of the west face. At the base, the route's name is etched on a stone block. There is also a cairn.

Protection

Medium sized nuts and cams with medium to long runners. At the top of the route there are two fixed pins with old webbing and one back up new runner. 60 meter rope gets you to the ground.

fun route. we approached directly up from a boulder field on the north side (not the sand hill). the route is easy to spot from the west side. the start takes a nice 3.5 friend to protect the moves off the ground. while broken up, the start and traverse protect well. after slinging a poor chockstone at the start of the wide stuff, we basically got nothing the rest of the way. doubles to a 1 camalot and the 3.5 friend should do it. there are a couple of nice stopper placements (we didn't have any). fun stuff up top. the leaps are spicy for sure. the anchor is less than awesome but ok. perhaps a fixed stopper to back it up? single rap. head north and descend the sand hill.
