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
WET ROCK: Holds rip off and climbs have been and will continue to be permanently damaged due to climbers not respecting this phenomenon. After a heavy storm the rock will remain wet, sometimes for several days. PLEASE DO NOT CLIMB IN MOAB during or after rain.
RAPTOR CLOSURES: please be aware of seasonal raptor closures at the Cat Wall and Reservoir Wall. They occur annually from March 31st until August 31st. *Due to the federal hiring freeze in agencies such as the BLM of Monticello, no official closure for 2017 has been issued and the laws which have been put in place in previous years are not being enforced. Please, for the sake of fragile desert ecology, DO NOT CLIMB at stated walls. These raptors return to the same nesting sites every year to raise their nestlings.
follow the bolt line. we aided up the first 3 bolts then went free to the top at 5.9. the route will probably go all free. SUPER well protected. this route is dedicated to all the average joes out there. very doable.
from the rim, rap or scramble in to the notch. the route starts in the notch on the downriver side of the tower. rap the route and scramble or jug back to the rim.
6 quickdraws (one with 24 inch runner), aiders or a stick clip. optional jumars if your jugging back to the rim.
