Lizard rock summit at sundown.

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 >>>


Follow the thin hands-to-finger crack on the left side of the face. The initial crack yields a medium nut placement if you need it. When the crack runs out, do cool face climbing moves on edges and cobbles to a bolt. From here, move up and right to join the standard route at the obvious flake at the start of the summit overhang. Sling the horn with a long runner, then climb jugs up the overhang to the summit mantel and a good belay.

Very good rock for the Fishers!


Bring medium nuts for the initial crack, a quickdraw, and a long runner.

you can get a #1 camalot above the bolt between the flake and the formation, and a #3 camalot a bit higher too

You could probably put an Ice Screw in all that poo between the bolt and the horizontal crack
