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
Access Issue: Poop Alert! Details


Coup D'etat is a very good, technical, albeit short route with mostly good rock. Powerful moves off the deck, with more power/tech moves for the duration. Care should be taken getting to the drilled angle. I fell there on my first go and met my belayer just a foot off the ground. There was only one bolt with tat for an anchor, so with Linus' permission I added another and cleaned it up. Hopefully this will draw some attention to an unheralded classic. Linus had a great eye!

I used a crash pad to get started, then placed a .5 and .75 in the obvious crack. After that there is one drilled angle and one bolt that will see you to the anchor. Just under the second bolt is a slot for either a purple or green c3 sized cam if desired.
