|This climb is fantastic; one of the best crack pitches near Moab, and could hold it's own at Indian Creek. I tried to lead this pitch, but didn't make it. Greg Epperson tried to lead this pitch, but didn't make it. Kyle Copeland took a couple of big drags from his camel cigarette, grabbed the rack, cranked into the lieback position, and SENT! Kyle, (once again), saved the day. We had a great time. This is an endurance climb that requires strength, stamima, technique, and a cool head. It's awesome.|

|Take two 5 and 6 Camalots to make the top pitch feel more comfortable but it's doable with one apiece. Two each of smaller cams protected the first pitch just fine. A good cooler weather climb, you might expect a climb like this at the Creek.|

An awesome route! super close to moab and barely gets any traffic! we had shade till about 12:30. SO Good, next time ill warm up more...
First anchor is good with 2 pitons and option to back it up, the 2nd pitch anchor is terrible, 1 decent piton and an old gnarly bolt and hanger, we replaced the old tat with some cord and did 2 raps back down. The top anchor could definitely use some new bolts if someone wanted to climb this awesome route and replace them.
Pro: Doubles of 4,5,6 camalots were nice, first pitch has lots of .5 ish size and i like having 3 #1's.
