crux 2

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 >>>


really cool "easy" route with only a few moves at the grade. great route for the average joe breaking into desert towers. be sure not to miss the awesome cam placement in that pocket below the summit. so cool. great location. great views. a little runout, but not bad. very well protected.


the right side of the formation (as viewed from the south). bomber new bolt anchors


2 quick draws, 1 #6 trango flex cam, 1 #7 trango flex cam, 1 optional #8 trango flex cam.

the approach is definitely the crux of this tower. the actual tower climbing is pretty brief and straight forward. makes for a nice easy day in a quiet area. thanks for putting it up. i brought a set of camalots from .5 to 4. i think i used a .5, a 2, and a 4 to position myself at the anchor (but mostly because i brought it). the bolts are good and protect the sandy slabby stuff well.
