BETA PHOTO: The left leaning crack

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 

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.

Location 

400' right of Bellyful

Protection 

4 red C3s, 4 blue X4s
