BETA PHOTO: The left leaning crack

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


Some cool sporty moves with an arete and tips crack lead into powerful thin crack moves. More sporty movement guards the anchor, when the crack thins back down.

This crack is formed by a severely overhanging detached flake, that is no more than a few feet thick. While I was able to aid up it without incident, its hard to tell if a lead fall would rip gear and/or cause the entire route to fall down.
