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

besides being around the left side of the formation a ways, this route is up above a band of crappy rock so it's not on the trail. You have to scramble a little to get up there. Oct 11, 2013
yeah, if i remember correctly you have to fight through some willow like bush thing to get over there. seemed like a perfect place to run into a rattlesnake.... Oct 11, 2013

yes a trudge but well worth it.. once yer dun with the climb throw the ropes all the way down to the trail then rap straight to the trail.. wen you pull yer rope stay clear as yer rope might knock some rock's loose.. this will prevent you from having to deal with the crappy loose scramble an bush..

FA. Karl Kelley. This route was named after my son. It has a very difficult bombay-ish start and goes to an awesome splitter! The route just right (Mad Hatter) was put up at the same time from my friend Dylan Warren and is an awesome lay back with a unique cave ending! Sep 4, 2014

very difficult, bouldery, sandy start. beautiful crack above! The anchors are hard to spot - tucked inside a pod for some reason. Oct 20, 2014
