Cleaning on the headwall

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 

P1-Traverse pitch. Requires some simul-aiding unless you have a 70 m rope. End at nice ledge.

P2-Easy aid/free up bulges to belay. This may be free climbable (A1/2)

P3-Easy aid/free up bulges to belay (A1/2)

P4-Nailing crux. Long stretch of gear in bad rock. Big (but clean) falls possible. 3 bolts allow transition from #1 beak seam to another crack system. End at double bolt belay.

P5 - More aid up the headwall and into the caprock. More beaking with occasional bolts.

P6/7 - Free/clean aid up Moenkopi chimney to the summit. Enjoy exciting offwidth finale.

Descent: Rap route. All anchors have at least 2 bolts.

Location 

On the left side of the Cerberus Gendarme, the large pillar to the left of the Hydraform Ridge.

Protection 

~5 small beaks, ~10 med and ~10 large beaks. Double set to #4, and a #5.
