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 clean, right-facing dihedral offers classic climbing. It would have a line if it were on Supercrack Buttress!
Hands/cups comprise the bulk of the corner, with some fists in a short offset in the middle, and a short stretch of tight hands leading to the brief off-width (arm-bar/heel-toe) finale to a sloping ledge.
This has the best rock of any climb I've done in the Bluff area...it's not quite Wingate, but pretty damn close!

Location 

Near the center of the west-facing cliff that runs from the shallow side canyon just beyond the parking/fenceline (south) to the Bant (north). Refer to the overview/ Beta picture below.
From the parking area/gate, walk up the closed two-track for about 1/2 mile, cut cross-country right (west) through the wash (brushy) and up the loose hillside to the cliff.
About 30 minutes from the car.

Protection 

(2X) 1, (3X) 2, (4x) 3, (1X) 6 (optional) BD camalots, chain/cold shut anchor.
