Harder than it looks!

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 >>>


For such a short route this thing packs a punch. Wedge yourself into the shallow chimney and jam and grovel your way up. Theres a nice crack in the back which starts as thin hands and pinches down to tips as the chimney pinches shut. Exit the chimney onto a small ledge with chain anchors.


Located about 30ft to the left of Ugly Betty.


A single set from thin hands down to tips should suffice.
