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 >>>


We did this route in four pitches plus some scrambling to access the virgin summit tower.


See pics for location


3 sets of cams. We had (2)#4, (2)#5 and (1) #6 as I recall

(1) #3 Pecker is nice on the last pitch.
