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 >>>


Climbing is ow and squeeze chimney, one part is named sleeping bag simulator. Supposedly easier than Lightning bolts crack.


The route starts in the west side, obvious crack system.

Bolting Note: The belay and protection bolts are probably still the original 1/4" aluminum nail-drives.

-The Creek Pasture climber's camp is marked with a red box.
-The 1.8 mile dirt road into Corral Pocket is marked with tiny red dots (zoom for clarity).
-Look for the unlocked gate from the highway.
-Steep hike marked in pencil (1,000ft gain).
-Probably the shortest approach for all routes on North Six-shooter.

i liked the first pitch, but you need wide gear for the second pitch, and the bolts have not been replaced!

The first pitch is fun. We backed off the second pitch. You can rappell after the first pitch.
