Powder Your Nose
Trad, 90 ft,
Avg: 2.6 from 5
FA: Khashayar "Khash" Mortazavi & Madison Goodman
> Moab Area
> Indian Creek
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
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.
A left facing corner located between Big Guy and Wavy Gravy. Climb a left facing crack that starts with mainly hands that goes to fingers with feet onto a small Ledge/stance. Then you will get into the shallow squeeze chimney and then pull the small roof; after the roof the crack gradually gets bigger and then pull onto the big ledge.
The route is located approximately 100 feet to the left of Wavy Gravy area in a left facing corner. There is a tree about 20-30 feet to the left of the route. There is also a plaque at the bottom of the corner.
Double set of cams from 0.2 Camelot to 2; plus a medium size nut (yellow offset dmm nut works great). You could also place an optional #4 or #3 in the first third of the climb; but not necessary.
