Color Me Bad

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 >>>


A 2-star route considering the initial 20 feet, which are sandy, but after that section, 3-star climbing and better rock. Jam and cling up the left-facing corner in an undulating crack that goes from slab to steep and back again a few times... It's pretty physical for the grade and a slot 2/3 of the way up is the crux. Smaller climbers may have an advantage there.

The worst part about this route was it's name- probably after a completely terrible pop-band in the early 90's who had a terrible and annoying MTV hit 'I Want to Sex U Up.' The low-light of my weekend was that running through my head for the first god-awful time in 15+ years.


This is a prominent left-facing corner about 1/2 way between GoldenEye and the 2 unnamed 10's East of there on the South Face of Technicolor. A plaque at the base names the climb 'Color Me Bad.'


A few smaller and larger pieces, but most predominantly 3-3.5" cams (blue camalots)

Interesting climbing, somewhat loose close to the top. I pulled of a couple of 10-30 pounds blocks on rappel. Be careful near the anchors.

A little confused by the above Alf comment, is this blue camalots or an offwidth? (It does actually look kinda wide in the pictures, but it also looks like the FA isn't named Carl, so maybe that comment refers to a different climb?)
