Ben on the off-fingers start of Serendipity.

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 

Pitch 1:This route starts with a stellar, slightly overhung, .75 camalot, splitter crack. Then the crack climbing ends and there are 1/4 inch studs that traverse left across the face, to a belay at a good ledge.
Pitch 2:Climb very loose rock past a few 1/4 inch studs to the summit.

Note: In Eric's book it says that the route goes free at .10a, this is not the case.

Location 

This route is on the north east side of the tower. Near the right side of the face.

Protection 

Standard desert free rack. Plus hangers and 1/4' nuts.
