|RAIN AND WET ROCK The sandstone around Moab is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. MORE INFO >>>|
Hand to fist crack, a little crumbly.
On the yellow and white horizontally striped wall to the right of Bellyfull 200yds. The two routes in the same alcove still have shit anchors.
If you read your guidebook for "Life" you will get to this route. Life is no longer there, it fell down. What remains is a surprisingly good hand to fist crack.
In Oct 06' I pulled the anchor (4"x1/2" rawl, hanger stamped "Comp Wall") out by hand. The new FA (I'm assuming "life had different anchors that fell off with it, these new bad anchors were placed on the freshly exposed rock) had drilled very poorly on softer than average rock. Since that time people have been rapping off my cam and leaving a note that you'll die if you climb this. I put in a 2 bolt anchor with a little glue in March 07. Because of the softness, I don't know how long the anchor will hold up. The route takes hand to fist size cams.
