The route.

RAIN AND WET ROCK The sandstone around Moab is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. MORE INFO >>>


This is a beautiful splitter route with good climbing and rock quality.
P1-Climb the perfect hand crack to a short wide section to a ledge at the base of a pillar. Build your own belay
P2-Continue up more good hands to a large ledge with a two bolt anchor.
P3-Follow the splitter through fists and OW to a belay in a chimney below a large roof.(crux)


This route is the obvious splitter that is located near the center of the wall. It is probably the most compelling route and is hard to miss when looking up at the wall.


Bring many hand to fist sizes and a couple of 5 camalots for the OW

This route is only about 100' right of The Large "S" shaped chimney "The Constrictor". This route has the potential to be taken to the top. I think you need 2 ropes for the rappel.

So as far as gear beta , you definitely need a six. And you need a full run of gear.we used small cams like purple power cams. Also, this route is quite Chossy. Use a 70 meter and a tag line. Run the first two pitches together. Where they give you beta to build the first anchor, it is loose. The ledge that you come to where they say to build the first anchor is nice if bolts were installed on the left side. I really don't know if this route will ever clear up. Definitely adventure climbing. As far as perfect hand, that would be in the eye of the beholder. Don't get me wrong. The vistas are amazing.
