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

Climb up a dirty crack with a bush in the way to a ledge. Enter the chimney and stem up to where the crack pinches down to offwidth. Thrash up and top out in a dirty alcove with some loose rocks. A short scramble up from the alcove, and you will find yourself in the middle of the King's Hand ledge.

Location

This could be considered an approach route to the other King's Hand climbs, as it tops out on the bench above Jaycee Park Campground. Hike climbers right from the campground until you can follow a gully uphill to some easy scrambling that brings you over a band of chossy stone. Head back climbers left along the ledge. The climb is the obvious wide crack facing North.

Protection

Wide gear suggested. 1-2 X BD #3, 1-2 X BD #5, 1-2 X BD #6, Large stoppers for the top section, and a few BD #1 or #2 to build an anchor.
