> Indian Creek
> Sabbatical Wall
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.
This route starts in easy #3 flare chimney leading up to a detached looking handcrack splitter mini pillar roof. This leads you to a Mega Left facing OW corner. This corner goes from tight #5s to wide #5s over 60 feet of so. Dont get your knee stuck!
Right side of Sabbatical Wall. Walk under a leaning pillar tunnel and walk 30 seconds climbers right. The plaque now reads "WP".

Camalots: 1-#1s, 3-#3s, 3-#4s, 4-5 #5s, 1 #6 at the start of the OW is optional to save your #5s if you dont have enough.
