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


P1: Chocolate Corner.

P2: Nerve wracking stemming up the corner past a few bolts and small nuts and cams, head games.

P3: Amazing looking snaking thin hands splitter up a steep! wall with great exposure.


Off the top of Chocolate Corner.


Few bolts and small gear including nuts.
  • I used 2 blue aliens, 1 yellow, 3 reds, a #2 camalot and stoppers #6-#11...possibly doubles.

There are some loose pieces just after the traverse into the crack from the belay, be sure to let any climbers below to keep an eye out. This pitch is a little sandy, but really good. Like a harder version of Anunaki. Long slings at the start keep drag to a minimum. [third pitch]

While its difficult to get on this thing because of the popularity of Chocolate Corner, this route is a total classic and should be on any hardman's, I mean person's, list. However, it would be unwise to climb above or below somebody on this route. There are a couple loose chunks on both pitches that could ruin somebody's day in a hurry. Bring a knife and new webbing.
