BETA PHOTO: There it is

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 >>>


Probably the easiest route on The Wall. Has 2 precarious looking blocks, we load tested them both but be careful and pull at your own risk.


Go to the far right end of The Wall and scramble up a gully to the base of the obvious splitter hand crack with 2 blocks.


Many gold and blue camalots with a couple reds at the top

Cool. I remember seeing this line a while back. I am glad somebody did it. There are a couple more in between this and the main wall, too, I think. Looks good.

little harder than 10-
plain ol' 5.10

10- seems a great grade. straight in jamming perfect hands with a pair of great rests. I'm always gripped at the creek and I was literally singing a little tune while I flaunted my way up this. My first clean lead at the creek too!

what a great route, an amazing find for such a late year (as with most routes at the wall).

Super great route, little odd that they used a Skynyrd reference for a wall where everything else is named for a Pink Floyd song. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this route to anyone looking to break into 5.10 leads at the Creek, with the caveat that the approach to the climb involves one of the most crumbly piles of sand and talus you'll ever find beneath an established route at IC
