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

Description [Edit]

The Bartlett Crack, AKA Stranger Than Fiction, AKA White Slipper. A ferocious Devil. I never expected to find such a wild and engaging piece of crack climbing. Brutally steep, with awesome, sporty, crack moves.

Location [Edit]

Turn off dubinky wells road, towards Bartlett. drive about 1.4, parking in some sand at the top of a long gradual hill. Hike up the dunes to the crag, and the BWC is a few minutes right. look for faint trail thru some dense crypto gardens

Protection [Edit]

A short vid of some early attempts. The send beta was further refined, and involved a taped right foot
