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 >>>

Description 

Bold moves on tenuous feet. Start standing with right hand on arete, and left hand on a small sharp sidepull. Get your foot on the rough patch at waist height, climb and finish straight up. You'll be using the arete the whole way, and that thing has varying degrees of positive. Nice rock, very aesthetic line, and flat landing make this a 4 star climb.
The feet get worse as you go higher, forcing you to keep on by just compression and smearing, and it's kind of tall, so get ready for some action.

Location 

Right side of Black Box boulder, look for the prominent fin arete, and the small holds on the face. Up high, there is a long obvious left facing crimp/slimper sidepull.

Protection 

2 pads, best to have a spotter, but I didn't when I did it, so you'd probably be fine if you kept it in control.
