BETA PHOTO: Short and Stout (5.9-), Critic's Choice, India...

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 >>>


A sandy ramp leads to a fist splitter. Climb that to the top of a short pillar. Worth doing for some #4 practice.
Gets afternoon sun.


Find this short little romp about 50 feet right of Brutus's prayer wheel.
The pillar is marked by some recent graffiti; someone (I would guess a climber?) scratched the words "X" and "Loose" to the right of the crack. I didn't feel the pillar to be loose, but it could be cracked through at the base, so take care.


BD: one 3 and two (new) 4's will suffice. Bolted anchor

Darron Reay and I put this up last fall. Fun short intro climb for someone wanting to try out number 4s. Pillar seems stable but I did hear from one larger individual that it moves (maybe he was laybacking the 4s?).

Route Name is Short and Stout.
