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

This route is located on the northeastern prow of the tower. The original line is further west, not east as described in DR3 (the fixed bolt can be observed).

Start up an interesting hand crack and then traverse left to an off-fingers crack. At the top of the off-fingers crack (10+), traverse left again (A1) for an exciting, poorly protected, mantle finish (10/10+).

This route will likely go free in the 11+/12- range.

Simul rappel off the tower since there is no summit anchor.

Protection

Single rack with emphasis on finger sized pieces, finger sized offsets. 1 BD #4 and some baby angles.

I cleaned out a placement out of the mud for gear on the a1 section, after I hung. This will provide a handhold now. The summit mantle is 5.10+ish and getting to the a1 section is 5.10+ish. :) Probably R, maybe not. Mantle of doom is on petrified cobble crumbs. Sort of like mixed climbing. Distributing your weight evenly. Still upset, I didn't free it. Worthy route! Nov 11, 2015
