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


Climb C1 over the bottom roof with small-med cams - this will go free, but looks hard. Free climb up into the chimney, then through a 5.9 squeeze to a semi-rest at a small roof. Grunt through the ~5.10 squeeze (I pulled on cams) to the top. Build an anchor at the top (#3 and 5 useful), then traverse left 40' to Loosen Up anchor to rap.


Follow description for Loosen Up across land bridge and 4th class traverse to base of the wall. This route is about 30' to the right of Loosen up, and obvious.


Double cams 0.5 - #5. 1- #6

I'm so stoked you went and did this thing! Bill and I looked at it and almost did it but after 'Loosen Up' we lacked the motivation. Good work Jeff! Oct 31, 2014
