Climbing through the roof.

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 >>>


Rarely do you find splitter cracks through large roofs in the desert, but thats exactly what R.I.L.F. has to offer for those that are willing to hike. The 8' roof is reached by a series of discontinuous finger cracks with a combination of jamming and face climbing. From under the roof a splitter #3 Camalot crack will take you out to the lip with a crux move getting established above. 10 more feet of easy climbing brings you to a ledge and the anchor.


About a 15 to 20 minute walk left from "Little Man in Suburbia". Just keep walking until you see the obvious roof splitter.


Camalots: (1).4, (3).5 & .75, (2)#1 & #2, (3)#3, slings. Two rap bolts for an anchor.
