Desert Eclipse

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 >>>


This route is for the desert rat out there. The first 2 pitchs are blue collar chimney and ow climbing with sand, and occasional loose rock to keep it interesting ! There is amazing 4th pitch waiting to be added by a motivated team (needs bolts).


Around mile marker 13 . West of Castle Valley turn off , on the south side of the road. Huge left facing white and black calcite corner system !


Standard desert rack to 5"
2- 60 meter ropes
