Fun at the roof!

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 >>>


Lt. Uhuru climbs the left facing corner left of Black Uhuru. Like Black Uhuru, Lt. Uhuru is mostly laybacking and jamming between good stances. The significant difference is the short corner roof at about 80 feet. If you are like me and hang out beneath the roof for a couple falls the end isn't bad, otherwise you may need some juice to get to the anchor. Note, the roof may be a little sandy, and something crumbled under my feet at one of the other stance and my belayer had to dodge.


The left facing corner left of Black Uhuru.


The anchors are at a full hundred feet, and consist of tat, so it may be wise to bring some new webbing along. The corner is mostly 1.5 friends.

much fun - the lower laybacking is just as nice, and little more sustained, than Black Uhuru.

a little more gear beta for those interested - lower laybacking section takes .75 Camalots (i used four), and the crux roof sews up with #1 Friend/.5 Camalots/orange metolius (i used one of each). other than that, bring singles from yellow metolius to #2 or #3 Camalot. as a side note, the anchors are still bogus tat - probably the same stuff Brian mentions in his description.

Awesome route! .5s out the little roof at the top. Rock quality is good, not crumbly! Save a hand size cam or run it out to the chains! I forget if it was bolts or angles, all seemed fine, would be rad to have some chain and rings!

I personally would have liked at least 6 .75s
