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 >>>


As the name suggests, climb the left side of the arete on the Black Box Boulder. If on the trail, this will be slightly around the corner if you are facing the boulder (the side with the long face and many other problems). Bump the right hand up the arete and make use of a small crimper with the left along the way. Top out


a pad is fine

You can also do a dyno variation to this problem. Upon reaching the crimp, match on it, set the feet and fire for the lip of the boulder. The guidebook calls this version v5. It's a long way to the top!

A great Big Bend dyno tour could start at Dyno for Dollars V4, then Circus Trick Stand up V4, then come over and do Hale Bop V5+, The Big Huck V7, and finally Phantom Fighter Dyno V8-9. Whew! Should probably start doing my power-cleans now!
