Ben Riley mid crux on Bowsprit

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 

Bowsprit tackles the huge, overhanging prow of rock that marks the right margin of the Wicked Crag. Climb up slick rock past a few bolts to a funky underclinging section (making clips by your feet), then turn the corner under the prow via a jug, and crank up the underside of the prow to a cruxy stand-up move off of crimps.
