|RAIN AND WET ROCK The sandstone around Moab is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. MORE INFO >>>|
A deceptively long right facing corner and roof guarded by some looseness. The meat of the route is an inventive undercling and stem out a roof after surviving a pumpy off-fingers layback section on slippery rock. Like layaway plan at the creek, this one makes you go for it...
Left of Working Class hero on the other side of the alcove. To my knowledge, this is the first route encountered on your left as you walk up Day canyon from the river.
Doubles to #3 camalot with extra #.5 camalots.

This route is actually named "Kiss of the Spider Women" and the FA was a team effort: Jimmy Dunn, El Craigo Diablo and The Spider Women (who found and started the line), thus the name. It was decided for the fun of it, no one in the FA party would be "allowed" to go up more than one piece on their turn on the sharp enda true team effort! (Many routes were put up in this style during that "era" by this group.)
El Craigo actually never advanced a piece, but rounded the roof to the stance and drilled the chains. El Craigo, RIP!
