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

Like the medieval Iron Maiden, looks terrifying but is mostly for show and not actually meant to torture you. Such a great highball! Positive holds and big feet with every move. Stand start with L fingers in obvious pocket. Head straight up to the exit. The mantle feels very exposed as there aren't any holds over the lip, but it's quite easy.

Location

Castle area. Obvious black face. The biggest boulder in the area and the route can easily be seen from the road. See pic.

Protection

No amount of pads are going to save you if you fall from the top of this.

this and anything but bland are clearly the best problems in this area. the description of this one is fairly benign, but it's actually fairly horrifying, with all the sand. super proud, awesome FA. Dec 13, 2016
