BETA PHOTO: The approach to H-Man.
|RAIN AND WET ROCK The sandstone around Moab is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. MORE INFO >>>|
Start the first pitch at the base of a right facing corner. I love David Blooms description in the 'Indian Creek Guide'(2nd Ed):
"Starts hands, goes to rattly fists. Second pitch is more rattly fists"
It was too rattly for my girly girl fists so lots of lie-backing for me. I found it fun, but strenuous. It was however my first trip to The Creek.
Nestled between 'Beers Later' (5:10+) and 'The Crowning' (5:10-).

The crack on the right is where it's at!

I did the first pitch. The climbing is pretty good, but the rock on the left side of the crack is a thin detached flake. I put gear in to keep my belayer from getting nervous, but I had no illusions about it's quality. By the time the crack widens and gets harder you will have good gear, just be prepared for 30' or so of 5.9 with bad gear to start. Pull your rope far to climbers right or the crack will eat it.
