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 >>>

Description 

This is route #6 in the Bloom 2nd edition, described as "cool stemming and varied jamming". Bloom gives this thing three stars, and potentially it could be a great route, but it was a bit unnerving to climb as it was very sandy, had some loose stuff throughout (my buddy exploded a block when he stood on it following the pitch), and small gear at the crux (green alien). It does not climb like a typical creek route. It felt much more like climbing in Eldo. There was a big, scary layback flake up high which, at the time, felt pretty terrifying to pull on...

I'm calling it PG-13 simply because it felt pretty heads up the whole time, but what do I know?

Location 

right of vegetarian corner. Look for a big, scary looking layback flake up high.

Protection 

purple metolius and maybe one thing smaller, (the rest are in BD camalots) 4 x 0.3, 0.4, 3 x 0.5, 2 each of 0.75-1, 4 x #2, 2 x #3, #4
