A great place to avoid the heat.

RAIN AND WET ROCK The sandstone around Moab is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. MORE INFO >>>

Description 

cool pody, flared flake that starts in a chimney and continues up and out. fun chimney/stemming moves for the first half of the route followed by some awkward cruxy moves on the flake.

Location 

directly behind the off width "desire", in the chimney behind the pillar that slice and dice is on, just past the full chimney route "Closed Course".

Protection 

finger to tight hands gear, could place a #4 Camelot in one of the pods

CONDITION REPORT 
As of 11/19/16, the anchor is a mess of poorly rigged tat that could really use cleaned up. I would have fixed it but I couldn't find my knife.

FYI from the Closed Course entry:

Further up this corridor one encounters a wavy, podded R-facing flake which we climbed for 100' or so. This has recently sprouted a lower set of anchors (right where it gets wide, funny) and a plaque: "Renegades of Funk, 5.10". Owing to the wing-like look of the feature, we had considered "Bernoulli Effect" as a name, but it was getting late to be sitting around carving on rocks.

fun and worth doing. good end-of-day-low-motivation sort of route. probably 5.9 or so to the first anchor.

Rock quality might be suspect. Climbers gear blows causing him to deck - rockandice.com/climbing-accide...

This route is awesome! Don't skip this route because a random dude took a ground fall - from the way the article reads, the guy took a ground fall because he skipped much larger cam placements and opted to place small cams, which in turn blew.

The sew it up rack in order top to bottom (camalots):
3,2,1,2, 0.4, 1, 0.75, 0.75, 0.5
