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 >>>


Thinner than Crack 1 and not as broken or fractured, Crack 2 yields good fingers the entire climb. Start either direct or by climbing up the blocky start to Crack 1 and traversing left on bigger-than-they-look sandstone nubbins - you'll appreciate the stickyness of the unvarnished lower part of this climb soon enough! Lead or TR this climb and use the Crack 1 anchors.

The photo below shows a portion of the slab just right of Crack 1 - no features, no crack, very dicey. Give it a try on TR and see if you can stick!


Small gear (wires, RPs, cams to #1 camalot). Easy to TR from the Crack 1 anchors (a 10' traverse along the top of the slab).

Thinner than its neighbors, this climb will make you focus on your feet.
