Thundercats, ho!

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 short route has a cruxy long reach to thin finger jams/liebacking right off the deck on good stone. The higher you can reach, the bigger the crack gets, so it should be the same difficulty for shorter folks with smaller fingers, right? As the crack widens, it becomes notably less difficult, then the rock gets a little crumbly at the top, where you can cut left and mantle or stay in the crumblies. We left a plaque at the base.

Location 

To the right of Miss Kitty, around the corner and to the right of Short Crack.

Protection 

Probably a single rack should do it, from purple metolius/blue alien up through BD#3, but you might want another BD#1 or #2.
