BETA PHOTO: Pitch 1

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 

This one has tricky bolt-protected face climbing and a splitter thin-hands corner, and it even stays dry in the rain. There is a second pitch as of 2008, which wasn't freed on the first ascent but is likely 5.11. There is a hard wide section with a swift's nest in it so this pitch might be good to save for the fall or winter.

Location 

Huge right leaning, right facing corner/forming arch on the north side of 313, on the first roadside wall encountered after passing Class Act and the large recess in the cliffline.

Protection 

Quickdraws, a double set of cams to #3 camalot with extra #1 camalots for the first pitch. For the second pitch take the double set plus a few big pieces to #6 camalot and some extra #.5 and #.75 camalots for the roof.
