the route

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 

The crux is a mixed 5.9 crack to the right of the main corner that requires wide and small gear with stemming that leads into a move left into the main corner. From here continue up a varying size crack/corner with jams, stems, and some off-width. There is plenty of protection in the fun ascent that leads to a great ledge and a two-bolt anchor. Great moderate with easy access from a big parking lot just up River Road.

Location 

First prominent corner left of Slip Me a Roofie. Rappel from the anchor. This climb is in an obvious wash across the road from the Riverway Regulations kiosk.

Protection 

#.3 to #6 Camalots with #8 - #11 hexes and some stoppers. Bring doubles of hand-sized pieces. To decrease rope drag use some long slings on the left traverse.
