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 Laser Crack is a wild, fairly straight forward route with a bit of clean aid, a few loose spots, but overall great climbing. Equipped and exciting!

Pitch 1-Starts in an obvious right-facing chocolate corner starting with thin hands(5.9)up to an offwidth to hands section(5.10a, #4 camalot)to the 2-bolt anchor(90')

Pitch 2-Traverse leftward on a dusty ledge past 1 protection bolt and into the Laser crack. A searing, rightward leaning splitter that tapers from hand to fingers in 60'. Free until you can't, then aid on perfect cams(2"-1/2") in perfect rock for 10-15' then pull up under a 2 foot roof.
Traverse under the roof rightward for 12' until you climb up the dihedral to gain the great ledge above with a 2-bolt anchor.(130')

Pitch 3-Climb up past 1 bolt and a fixed knife blade(5.11) and continue up the beautifully thin(5.10c) ramping corner to it's very end at a ledge(140')

Pitch 4-Traverse 15' leftward and up a short left-facing corner and up to the main ledge above.(5.9-40') ....solo to the top.
