  • Raptor Closures 2017: Check status and details at: nps.gov/arch/planyourvisit/roc... -Read about Anchor Replacement and Restrictions in Arches National Park
  • 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 

    More slab climbing! Do some easy slabbin' to the first bolt and do a tricky mantel to reach the second. The crux comes just past this with a very thin move with terrible feet to reach some small edges. A taller climber might have a significantly easier time on this section that someone of average height. Beyond the third bolt the climbing eases up, continuing at 5.10 past seven more bolts. Anchors are two bolts currently equipped with a quicklink and a carabiner.

    Location 

    Brainiac is the right-most route of the Sunshine Wall slabs, roughly 100 m climbers right of the Science Friction Slab. Just right of Walking on Sunshine.
