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 

Cool thin line up the shady side of Eagle Plume.

First pitch is the crux with choss at the bottom and thin stuff up high as you traverse left. This pitch was previously climbed.

Fun little route and easy hike.

Location 

Thin crack line left of Milk Crates From Hell. First pitch climbed previously as evidenced by fixed RURP and old fixed Birdbeak.

Rap route.

Protection 

Triple rack of cams, some big Peckers and some thin Lost Arrows. Couple bolts here and there to link up seams. As I recall we didn't need anything really wide (#5, #6). All bolts have hangers (I think).

Climb the first pitch at 2008-07-19. I rappel after fixing first pitch at night at furies storm. Next day was also so hot I was not able to continue. Just finish the belay and pull rope down leaving some staff at the crux. The bolt at the middle of 100’ pitch is now not necessary. I drilled it because fighting few loose blokes above me. After removing them now is good placement on small ledge. Also I spent a lot of time cleaning the first section above the ground. Now is much more acceptable than was at the beginning I think.

This was my last real climb. Unfortunately I was not back to finish my project. Few days after I have table saw accident … and stop serious climbing.
