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 >>>

I have soloed over 100 pitches of modern A4 and over 30 pitches of modern A5 including many pitches of A5+. I feel uniquely qualified to rate aid climbs.
