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

Although not as eye popping as Zen Garden, Shaolin Finger Jab climbs just as well as its neighbor. Zach Smith, who developed the area, found a gem with this line.

If you're looking into the cave this line starts matched on a crimp rail about 15' right of Zen Garden. Easier yet, look for the obvious three finger pocket and follow it back to its obvious starting point.

Climb perfect horizontal edges to a long move to the pocket, and don't let the feet cut as you go for a jug (crux). Follow jugs to crimps on the headwall and committing moves on slopers for the top out (brush them first). The exit moves are made extra exciting as you find yourself higher and higher off the ground and above a tree. Lots of pads and spotters recommended for the top out.

Protection

If you're doin the OG top out you'll be doing some dynamic moves right above a tree so watch out.
