BETA PHOTO: Pretty sure this is the right route. If not, some...

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 >>>


The crux is reading the route. It has an inobvious offwidth to it that requires a #5 camelot. It was sandy when I did it and there was a large detached flake half the size of a car door that could fall off- dont be discouraged this was an engaging route with cool stemming, offwidth etc


Route is located to the far right of 4x4. Plaque at the base identifies the route as well as it being adjacent to a large pillar/ chimney system. All I had at the time was a possibly short 60m. A full 70m rope will most likely make it to the deck


upto old #5 camelot for the offwidth. a bevy of handsized gear, some smaller stuff for the top just below the anchor 0.75 camelots

Assuming the photo I posted is Linkage and not "Unnamed 5.10" (see photo of next route in MP) a 70 gets you down no problem. Not 140 feet.

Any consensus on whether the route photo is actually of Linkage or of this Unnamed 5.10?

I don't have the Bloom guide book handy, and I've heard that it has some mistakes for routes at the far right of the wall (starting around Collision Course maybe?).

I climbed the pictured route a couple of days ago and found the offwidth to be burly and a bit hard to protect without a #5 or #6 Camalot. A 70m is fine for rapping or TR. A TR here will also let you play around in the easy yet unprotectable chimney just to the left (we jokingly called it "Strut", though surely someone else has climbed it before).

No, the photo currently posted is not Linkage. This route sits around the right of a large detached flake/block/pillar. Right before the flake/block/pillar reads a plaque: "Knobby Tires." Since Linkage is to the left of Knobby Tires, this can't be Linkage.

The guidebook may not be correct, but many posters here may not be correct either.

i moved the old beta photo to 'unknown 10 left of variety pack'. the current photo shown above is linkage (per karl kelley, who put it up). hopefully that helps organize this area a bit.
