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

Description 

pitch 1: classic stemming and jamming in a calcified open book that leans to the left at its top. begin on small holds with tiny cams for pro. the corner gradually widens and steepens, going through the sizes up to big hands. exit the corner at its top and belay at a small stance. 5.11c, 150ft.
pitch 2: pretty good climbing. straight up some easy cracks to a steep hand crack and the summit. 5.10, 100ft.

Location 

the first route encountered to the left of holier than thou on the north face of the nuns. overhanging widening left facing corner. rappel the route. two ropes required.

Protection 

triples from blue alien/purple tcu to #3 camalot. nuts may be useful right off the deck.
