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.
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.
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.
