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 

First pitch is a bit of an off-width but has peripheral cracks to protect. The rock isn't bad. The second pitch is the hoot! The stronger (arms) climber must mount the shoulders of the second in order to gain purchase above a loose overhang. Two moves and it's over, no protection required, just balls (sorry ladies, I should have used the term "nads" which is an abbreviation for gonads which you ladies do have)! Then the leader must hoist a bit to get the second over the hump enough to gain purchase and make those two moves. Different, but fun! Or bring aiders and jumars for the second.

Location 

This route is on the south-west corner of the formation in an obvious corner that requires some 4th class scrambling to get to. The route is so obvious it probably is not a first ascent by me!

Protection 

Small to medium cams and one #4 and one #5 cams.
