|RAIN AND WET ROCK The sandstone around Moab is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. MORE INFO >>>|
This is the route done to set up a TR on Powerline. Good fingers for the first fifty feet (mostly 5.11- finger locks to a short tips section) leads to a thin crux layback sequence at the top. Very fun!
A .75 Camalot or two for the start and then many finger pieces down to a #0 TCU. The crux takes green aliens.
This route ascends the left facing dihedral immediately right of Power Line and shares the same anchor.

Mostly yellow aliens. One green (red C3 / blue TCU) towards the top. Red / grey alien down lower. I thought this was pretty easy for 11+ give the feet. Awesome route even if it is a little soft.

This route is really good. Great gear throughout and the business is less than 10 feet. If you're tall it's more like 11-.

surprisingly friendly for the first 40', but I think the last 10' justify 11+. Less than tips for me, the feet dry up, and the angle spits you out. Nice climb! Mostly #0.5 C4, a few #0.4 and #0.3, and #1 C3 at the top.
