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 a really fun route with a relatively short, but hard crux. It is the elegantly curving crack to the right of Gunsmoke, and starts with perfect hands before some fingery 5.10 moves into a rest pod. Moving out of the pod up to the final crux seems about 10+ or so, then it's 10 feet of desperate, splitter rattly fingers to the anchors. Jump on it even if you're not a solid 11+ desert climber since the crux is short. Great route!


Friends: 3-4 #2.5; 3-4 #2; 3-4 #1.5 (save 2 for the crux at the top), and maybe a couple #1s

Does anyone know if this route goes on? The crack tapers to fingers after the anchors and the rock is spectacular.Next time I'm in town I'm gonna give it a go, but I'm curious if it's been done already?

There's some really dangerous loose blocks on a ledge 20-30 feet over the current anchors that would be most prudently cleaned on rappel.

the continuation of miss kitty likes it that way is called miss kitty likes it raw. traverse right from the anchor on miss kitty into the last 50ft. of rawhide, the next route to the right. bring 5 or 6 red camalots for the combination. this link-up avoids the loose wide start to rawhide and adds some exciting, traversing face climbing and a good dose of perfect thin hands on great rock to the already good miss kitty.

Pulled an anchor bolt out pretty easily a few days ago..Not sure if it was an addition or the OG but it wiggled, and walked out a little too EASILY. After removing realized it was a poor hardware store bolt. There is currently a drilled pin and a decent looking Rap Bolt
