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

Single rope rap to pitch 4 anchors than the double rope raps to the ground. All bolts have hangers. Easy rap with good pulls.

Try it and tell us how long it takes you. Hint - if the rack calls for 50 peckers, those 5 pitches are not going to go real quick. Jul 18, 2013

I have gotta question the grade V rating.... 5 pitches, even if it's aid ? Grade III takes all day... Grade IV means you will probably have to bivy. Grade V, only speed climbing teams typically complete under 24 hours. These grades are representative of the climbing, not the approach, as I understand. That aside... great looking line, nice work.
