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 

Make easy unprotected moves off the ground to access the low angle crack below the obvious bulging handcrack. Bypass the 20x30 foot block on the right by making face moves and then climbing the widening fingers to hands crack. Finally, climb the strenuous cupped hand crack through the bulge to access easier ground en route to the chains.

Location 

Located approximately 100 yards left of Pile of Puppies and Egg Burglar and about 15 yards left of the large section of pink poor quality rock in the vicinity of the prominent prow on the right side of the cliff. The route begins about 30 feet right of the letters "W.C." spray painted on the wall.

Protection 

(1 each)0.4-1.0, (4)2.0, (4)3.0, (3)4.0, (1)5.0, and a few trad draws.

The anchor bolts on this route were updated in 2009 according to the plaque, but the cord is looking pretty ratty. Bring some chains if you're headed up there.
