Well....

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 

The project listed in Karl's book and on the cover photo on The Scars front page (on MP). Pull stacked boulder problems separated by good rests followed by sustained .11 climbing to the chains. The name may help identifying crucial beta.

Originally rated .13b maybe it has gotten easier or helps to be tall. I thought it was 12d so I'll settle on 13a until others have tried it. It's a good one though - I'm not sure which is better Knee Scar or Extended Care.

Location 

Just right of Zipper and left of The Flapper

Protection 

Stick clipping may be a good idea.
