An amazing boulder for photography! The climb is a...

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

Description 

An oft neglected classic. Black Angus takes the leaning sloper ramp all the way to the top.

Start matched on a crimp rail and make your way out to the arete and up the sloping rail to the flat top out. You'll be very high off the ground once your close to the top and the farther you go the worse your landing gets.

The sun beats down on the black varnished sloper rail so this is probably much easier when the temps are low.

Location 

Up the hill and around the corner from Sloper City.

Protection 

Lots of pads and a spotter once your going for it.

Tricky. Lick you fingers on a cold day.
