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 [Suggest Change]

In a nod to the onslaught of sand throughout this route rather than the nefarious hobbies of our commander in chief, this route tackles the attractive and obvious crack system in a left facing dihedral about 20ft to the right of Golden Child. Scramble atop a detached block and venture through some rotten rock towards the double finger cracks and obvious hand crack. Follow the crack through a hanging chimney and some sandy wide sections to a stellar left leaning hand crack above that goes from #3's to #2's at the end and a two bolt anchor.

The second offwidth/chimney section has some loose blocks that may need to be cleaned. This is a very sandy route and has a fair amount of loose rock, so take care, bring a big rack, and check this thing out, it's wild!

Protection [Suggest Change]

Double rack, and as many #3's you can find. (I placed 6) I also placed everything from a #00 Mastercam to a #6 C4. The double finger cracks before the hand crack takes nothing larger than a .4 C4.
