Don't really need a #6.. Jakes just gettin' "...

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 

The route starts inside of the pillar left of the flake that is 'Charlie's Pillar'. Follow this wide crack and do the first squeeze that gets you to a ledge. Go a bit left and do a final chimney squeeze near the face to reach the bolts. Overall a fun and interesting chimney route sure to get your hog tossed!

Protection 

Bring a few bigger pieces for the bottom section. Smaller gear for the top. .5"-4" Uses the same bolted anchor as Brodies Machine and Charlie's Pillar.
