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
WET ROCK: Holds rip off and climbs have been and will continue to be permanently damaged due to climbers not respecting this phenomenon. After a heavy storm the rock will remain wet, sometimes for several days. PLEASE DO NOT CLIMB IN MOAB during or after rain.
RAPTOR CLOSURES: Please be aware of seasonal raptor closures at the Cat wall and Reservoir wall. They occur annually from March 31st until August 31st. *Due to the federal hiring freeze in agencies such as the BLM of Monticello, no official closure for 2017 has been issued and the laws which have been put in place in previous years are not being enforced. Please, for the sake of fragile desert ecology, DO NOT CLIMB at stated walls. These raptors return to the same nesting sites every year to raise their nestlings.
Recently there has been a rash of human poops along Wall Street. There are bathrooms in the campgrounds a half mile from popular crags here. Use them.
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.
