RAIN AND WET ROCK The sandstone around Moab is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. MORE INFO >>>


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

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.
