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

Description

Excellent route. Start on the right side of the orange face and wander some as you follow the chalk and the line of least resistance. A stretchy reach to the left at about 1/3 height is the technical crux of the route. Climb on mostly moderate terrain to the base of the roof, then load up and fire through the roof on huge holds and gun it to the anchor.

Location

Around the corner to the east of Midsummer Night's Seam are where the longer routes lie. An Overflow of Good climbs a light orange face with a roof up high that faces north, or more directly to the river. Look for the "11" drawn in chalk at the start. It's the next route left of a collection of 3 5.10 and 5.11 routes that climb the dark rock on a more east facing wall with a ledge at the base.

Protection

12 bolts to 2 bolt anchor with mussy hooks.
