  • 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 

    There is a tricky move past a drilled piton before you can get into the crack itself. The rock above and a bit to the right of the piton seems to be the best way to go. You can get a #3 Camalot in to the right above a little ledge. Once in the dihedral you can place one more #3, then it is #2's for the next 70'. about 20' from the top the crack narrow's a little to #1's, and then .75's just before the anchors. There are some features on the wall to give your feet a break. This is an awesome crack, but to this point it does not look like it has seen much traffic. It could still use a some cleaning up.

    Location 

    Located 150' past Tower 143, around the corner to the right.

    Protection 

    Quick draw for the piton. Camalots needed: 2 #3's, 4-6 #2's (4 works if you walk some, 2 #1's, 2 #.75's.
