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 MORE INFO >>>


A clean, left-facing dihedral that starts hands and quickly widens to fists and then tenuous, rattly fists. The anchor is located where the crack rolls over onto slabbier terrain and the rock gets soft. The rock is pretty clean and solid, considering this is on the fringe of the giant rock scar.

Barely got to sneak this one in before dark on a surprisingly warm late-fall day, hence the name.


On the right-hand fringe of the large, obvious rock scar panel in the center of the wall.


(2X)#2 (3X) #3, #4 BD C4 sizes, chain/cold shut anchor.
