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

A short, boulder-problem start leads to a long slab with thin edges and friction moves. There is a low crux off the ground and another crux about halfway up. And let's be honest, it's probably not good to top rope this route or the Slab Route to the left. The sandstone is soft and you can see many rope grooves here already. Rapping, instead of lowering, would cause the least impact on the rock.

Location

Right of Slab Route (5.7) about 40 feet at a small alcove with an angled calcite strip in otherwise maroon colored rock.

It is harder than 5.9 going from the first to second bolt in my opinion. In a recent wall street guide book the bolted slab route to the right is listed at 5.10 and this climb is just as hard. Both are fun climbs though. May 22, 2014
Pretty fun climbing for the first 2 bolts, but after that the route turns into a boring friction climb Nov 12, 2014

Cruz felt up high rather than low. Slab and friction.. Not a bad route Apr 4, 2016

Start far left, and traverse right for the fun. Set up your anchors on the third bolt because there's nothing happening after you reach it. Better yet, bring a crash pad and forget the rope. Oct 10, 2017

A heads up - Anchor point is missing one of the hangers giving you only one point of protection for lowering. However, the bolt is somehow still on the wall leaving you with options to back yourself up. Route isn’t worth the headache though May 29, 2018

Crux is in the first 15 feet. After that easy cruising to the top! Jul 6, 2018
