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

Friction your way up over small holds, past 5, maybe 6 bolts. The route runs up the middle of a 40' wide, well featured, slab . Where the anchors are located you can top rope at least 4 different lines without sharing a hold.

Location

Head toward the back of the canyon, and start looking up to the right before you get to the dark varnished rock. The slab has a mix of varnish and lighter rock and is just left of a big left facing dihedral.

Protection

5 or 6 Quickdraws, and a .75, or #1 Camalot to place between the last bolt and the anchor. There is a 2 bolt anchor with webbing that may need to be changed out due to sun bleaching.

Yup, if this was on Wall Street it would have people on it all the time. Good climb to learn to trust your feet on. Apr 8, 2015

Fun little climb. close to town and quick and easy to get to. nice secluded area even though you can see town. great views. and yep, WARM IN THE WINTER! a little bit run. not to bad. just enough to give it some spice. a tad crumblelisous at the start but the rock quality goes up as you do. well worth doing if your looking for a quickie with minimal gear. we used a single 70 and had lots left on the ground.
optional .75 or #1 camalot to pro up the final moves to the anchor. Feb 6, 2014
