Magic Carpet Ride

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 >>>


This is the first route you encounter after crossing the log. It is on the right arete of the right wall.


6-8 bolts to anchors

May I confirm the bit runout comment? What a satisfying lead. If you don't fall clipping 5th bolt!

50 feet? Please. That would be more than one bolt every 10 feet. That ain't this route!

Great route! Lots of small pinches, a bit exposed. Tons of fun.
