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

AKA: The Compressor Route - This is the pinnacle in front of Million dollar baby. Climb the chimney start to MDB and head up the bolt ladder with a couple of intermittent gear and pin placements in the middle and up top.

Location

In front of Million Dollar Baby.

Protection

#4, #.75 camalots, many biners or draws and some baby angles or lost arrows should do. (the pin placements should go clean with offsets if people clean their pins upward... if not already)

For the shorter leader (I'm 5'5"), its nice to have some artificial reach for a couple of the bolt clips. Even in the top steps, I couldn't reach without my improvised trekking pole stick clip. There is a mostly detached block near the top that was pretty nerve wracking to pull on, but seemed like the only means to progress up? I wasn't able to get cams or stoppers in the pin placements but maybe someone else will be able to climb it clean. Really cool summit and setting! Nov 30, 2016
-I would guess the rappel off the top is about 180'.
-Be perpared for the random free move between bolts. Nov 17, 2012
