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

For those days when you would rather be anywhere but a podunk little town in the Utah desert that doesnt have coffee or booze. This awesome traverse is the epitome of power endurance. Two great problems for the price of one?! Can't be beat.
- Right to Left. Stand start on the slopey triangle jug at the end of the rail. Throw a heel and start cranking. You will eventually reach a point at the finish where it's almost impossible not to drag. Find a L foot under the rail, right at the end of the problem, and mantle up onto the face to finish at the arete. Continue up Free Hugs to the top if you want to top out. Hint: a few sneaky heel-toe cams will save you if you can use them. V4ish
- Left to right. Sit start at the arete and start working left. You transition to horizontal right before the boot shaped jug and start working down the rail. Instead of finishing at the end of the rail, you are going to head up the crack. Big power moves off of the rail will help you get onto the face. Continue up crack to the top of the boulder. V5ish
