RAIN AND WET ROCK The sandstone around Moab is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. MORE INFO >>>

Description 

If you are walking up the trail from the parking lot, this will be the arete you will see on the left corner, with the arete facing the road. It is just before you would turn the trail to see the wide section of the boulder with many other problems. Start on a good right hand crimper and bump up the arete with the left hand to top out. This problem and the Arete Left Side utilize the same arete, just different corners of it and use the opposite hands to bump with if that makes sense.

You can do this from a sit start as well. Adds about a grade of difficulty to it. Doesn't climb as well as the stand.

IMO this climbs better if you forgo the holds on the right and only use the arete and the 2 finger face crimper. Probably adds a grade.

Felt a bit harder than v3. Crux for me was hitting the top while your left hand is out on the arete. Might be easier for taller people (I am 5'8"). Beware the large rock buried right in the landing, even with pads you can still roll your foot on it. I really enjoy this climb as it felt pretty technical
