The Pit of Despair
|RAIN AND WET ROCK The sandstone around Moab is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. MORE INFO >>>|
You will never escape the Pit of Despair, the chains are far too thick!
Offset splitter! Initial 25' squeeze chimney leads to a good ledge. It could be wise to bring your belayer up to here for the next bit. Bouldery face move past a bolt leads to nice rest. Followed by desperate tips move. Then sweet fingers to pod, followed by off fingers sprint to the anchor ledge.
Second pitch from hands to squeeze (to rim?) has let to be climbed....
Striking splitter that captures your attention for most of the approach.
Double zero to .75 camalot. Optional nuts. A 6 is nice for initial squeeze.
