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 

Octopus is route #15b (unknown? 140') in the new Indian Creek Guide, but its way taller than 140'. It starts by squeezing up a fun chimney with ample face holds that can be protected by a #6 Camalot and a slung chockstone. Once above the chockstone a #1 Camalot crack can be found inside the chimney which is the same splitter crack that leads to the anchors. Thin hands and some wide fingers will get you to a nice rest ledge at the bottom of the crux. Plug in a couple finger size pieces and layback up a steep left angling flake with a hard topout. Finish with a nice overhanging hand crack to the anchors.

Location 

About 100 yards right of Neutron Dance. Look for a right facing corner with a chimney and a wavy splitter hand crack above that goes forever!

Protection 

1 #6 Camalot, 3 or 4 each .5 through #2 Camalot. 1 or 2 #3 Friends for the top are nice. Two ropes are needed to rap back down. Anchor is bolts with webbing.
