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

The crux is beginning. Find the tiny crimps with just enough room for your fingernails to start and good luck holding on. The jug at the top is solid, bring your feet up and catch the left gaston to get to it. It can be easier or harder depending on your height and fingernail strength.

Location

Round the back, on the slab side of Wash Boulder.

This is not a first ascent. It is documented in both Utah bouldering guides and has been climbed for many years. It's unnamed and is given v3 in both books. The information should be changed to reflect this.

Also, it is definitely not a grade II route, so that should be removed from the description. May 18, 2017
