Brent onsighting Sig Sauer

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 >>>


Schweizerische Industrie Gesellschaft was an old school Swiss manufacturing firm. J. P. Sauer & Sohn is a German firm that markets world wide. Some history behind SiGARMS Sig Sauer handgun. Oh yeah, and the name given to a sweet finger splitter at the creek.

The far far right section of Pistol Whipped Wall sees less traffic and more sunshine than the main section. The approach trail and main section of routes lead right to the end of the main section of concentrated routes which end at Short and Stupid (5.8). From there a long section of undone and rarely done routes goes right about 200 yards until you reach a place to stop and climb. Three routes lie side by side, with Sig Sauer the center finger splitter. An unnamed hand to OW crack lies on the left (not a bad line - a little dirty maybe 10+/11-). A finger to and crack on the right (looks good - you tell me - not in the Bloom guide). Jolly Rancher, the quality long hand to wider crack is about 10 yards to the right of these three lines.

Now for SS. Climb the easier start through some pods, and with features to the start of the splitter finger seam. Cruise it to the anchors. Now ponder what it might be like to continue past the anchor. Thirteen at least.


From 2.5 to 0.5 inches. Heavy on 3/4 to 1 inch.

My Gear Wish list for this climb (With a typical grain of salt): BD sizes -- #1x1 #0.75x1 #0.5x1 #0.4x6 (or more) #0.3x1 and Metolius #3x2.

The BD #0.4 and Metolius #2 both worked equal well in the meat section.

This climb was put up onsight by Jay Smith. Yellow aliens work great through the crux splitter fingers section. Beautiful!

This is an awesome climb. Splitter fingers and tips with some feet and fun sequence. Highly recommended to make the hike to the right side of the cliff for this gem.

Very, very fun. If you've got sport climbing finger strength, enjoy yellow Aliens and are comfortable smearing steep varnish, this route will probably feel more like 5.11.

Gear listed above is excessive. I used 2 each yellow, orange, and red metolius. If you want to sew it up take 4 yellow metolius and 2 each of the others.

Great route! It seemed tougher for big fingers, or maybe I'm just weak.
