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


The faded plaque hints at the name of a video game ninja from the early 90s. When spelled with an "s", many of us will remember the Ginsu knives that were hawked on infomercials during the late 70s and 80s, said to cut through anything. Ginzu's catch phrase from the game Captain Commando was "I'll slice 'em, I'll dice 'em."

Some easy-ish chimneying brings you to a stance below the tips and fingers splitter. Hard entry moves give way to easier, featured climbing through baggy fingers and bigger. Very good route, with a unique feel for The Creek.


Immediately right of Slice and Dice. Starts in the chimney


A few tips pieces, and many in the yellow Alien/tcu to red Alien/.5BD range. Doubles of .75 and 1BD

Nate - thanks for posting this and the favorable review! I put this route up in October of 2005. I miss-spelled the route name on the plaque, it should have been Ginsu, referring to the knives that you mentioned, as a play on "Slice and Dice". Thanks to your research however, Ginzu is maybe even better! We refreshed the plaque last weekend. Apr 14, 2017
