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 

Climb an initial section of wide crack from #3 to #4 Camalot in size. Step left when possible to climb an easy crack in the corner underneath the roof. At the roof, go right, pulling through the first roof via a layback and then pulling through a second roof just above. Finish with good jams before a "surprise" wide section at the top. If you want to protect the wide section at the top, bring a big piece (#6 Camalot ?) or run it out until you can reach around left to place a piece in the left crack before manteling to the anchors. A good, varied climb, especially if you don't mind doing a little bit of wide climbing.

Location 

To the right of Variety Pack, Unnamed 5.10+, and Unnamed 5.10 is this obvious left-leaning wide crack with two roofs above. Starts in the crack on the face with huecos to the right of a right-facing corner system. Plaque at the base.

Protection 

Double set of cams from .5 Camalot to #4 Camalot with maybe an extra in the #3 and #4 size.

Didn't find the 6 necessary...actually only took a 4.5 and placed at the first roof.. You can escape left at the top and avoid the OW and have a fun finger crack to hand jam...REALLY ENJOYED THIS ROUTE!!!!! solid 11

Not sure you'll get off this with a 60m rope. 110'?

Getting up the initial wide crack is protectable with #4 camalot and smaller. Agreed that having a #6 for the last 20 feet is very much appreciated.

For a more sustained climb, avoid the crack to the left of the wide stuff for continued rattly fists and a fun OW stembox to the roof. The left crack does protect well but be sure to extend with long runners. I had 3 BD 4s and 4 BD 3s and felt good. Also an advocate for the 6. After the roofs, you'll want some mental pro getting into the wide stuff up top. Solid 5.11 climbing; sandbag your friends.
