Newt beginning the crack after the sandy start.

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 

This is a striking line on the left side of 4x4 as you're trudging up the approach trail. Located in a lighter colored rock than most of the dark sandstone around it, it is a straight up splitter in a left facing dihedral. It has a sandy short beginning with a great #1 camalot placement at the beginning of the crack. It then goes to great hands (#2 camalots) and gets progressively wider to a sandy sloping ledge just below the anchors

Location 

Take the approach trail to the center of 4x4 then walk left along the base about 200ft.

Protection 

#1 - #4 camalots.

3 friends fit better for the beginning of the route (right above the roof)and then 3 camalots (2 each)to a 4 camalot before the chains. Fun route.
