BETA PHOTO: The route

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 

Right-facing OW flake that lends itself to laybacking. Nice face features keep it mellow.

Location 

Immediately left of where the new trail meets the cliff.

Protection 

5"-6". New #5 camalots were pretty tipped out, the old 5's might be perfect.

this is not yer style Alex? short an dumpy 5.9 for you but a 9 leader will get crushed .... may sound harsh but you should consider what 30 ft of 5.9 should feel like... no disrespect..

No worries Devin. Dan got the FA on this baby and I agreed with him that the climbing was not hard enough to warrant 5.10. I actually enjoyed this route but it is a little spooky because of the thin edge you have to pull on but there are good feet the whole way, just feels sporty.
