Eric Dixon at the crux roof.

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 >>>


Walk past Annunaki down the wall a ways. Look up to spot this impressive wide hands roof 100 feet off the deck. Burl your way up the wide 5.9 start via some awkward moves in a flared chimney to the base of the roof. Launch out of the roof on polished feet and wide hand jams. Just as the jams get their widest, be prepared for a confrontation with some guano. Make one of the best positioned moves I've ever done to clip the chains.


Heavy on the #3.5 and new #4 Camalots. A few #3 and #2, possibly a couple #1 too, although I found few uses for them. 70M rope.

Oh man, this route is fun, until the mega poop roof. It was full of sand and a huge swath of crap layered very thick. Slick and poopy situation indeed.

Would-be 5-star mega-classic but the guano finish left me feeling downright dirty. Definately still worth jumping on though. I suggest saving about four #3 camalot-sized pieces for the roof and one #5 C4 is great for the wide bit mid-pitch (not 2 of 'em like the guidebook suggests).

Agreed that this climb would be mega classic if not for the guano. Super fun movement and gnarly roof. Word of caution, I had a blue friend size piece pop out when i fell at the roof, luckily my next #3 BD caught me. exciting! still worth doing the route but be cautious with cam placements in the guano and soft sand, which i am pretty sure made the cam ooze out.

Anchor fixed up and tat replaced with chain courtesy of ASCA.

This is one of the burlier 5.11 routes at The Creek, and one of my new favorites. Hop on it, just bring plenty of #3s and #4s. No need to bring more than one #1, contrary to what the Bloom book describes.

uses every bit of a 70 meter rope.
