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

Definitely one of the better traverses at Big Bend; and at a moderate grade. Sit start at the far right end facing Scoopula and the Black Box. Go up, then traverse left just below the lip.

The choice is yours whether to use holds on the top or not. Personally, I feel it climbs much better if you eschew the holds on top and climb the natural weakness. The book gives it V4 if you avoid the top, though it certainly isn't as hard as the benchmark V4 at Big Bend. ;)

Top out just above the large hueco.
