Aiding up Buzz Lust

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 >>>


Buzz Lust is the bolted arete to the right of Moonshine. The difficulty steadily increases as the climb progresses, culminating with a final boulder problem to the anchor. This route may be height-dependent, and will undoubtedly get more difficult as holds break/wear away.


12 draws.

It's all A1 in the desert baby!!!! if ya can't free it (we couldn't); easy aid up the bolt ladder. even at that; mandatory 5.8 move near the top. bondo did a nice job on the sharp end. easy to the deck with a single 70. BOMBER chain anchors (thanks sam). fun little tower. nice location. another one of those that are close to town but feel real secluded.
