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 

I may be overselling this one with a 4 star rating (some soft rock), but its a truly special pitch. A steep and insecure flare puts you under a beautiful rattly finger splitter. Widens to thin hands at the top. Niels wanted to rate it 12-, but hes a bit of a sandbagger.

Location 

turn onto bartlett wash rd, and drive about 1.9 miles, turning into a campsite below the prow of the buttress. Hike back into the canyon behind the buttress, aiming for the beautiful chocolate wall, split by an awesome crack.

Protection 

a bunch of .4s thru #1s quads or therabouts
