Tossing another BD#1 to Mike before the crux

RAIN AND WET ROCK The sandstone around Moab is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. MORE INFO >>>

Description 

Beautiful thin hands/layback corner. Some thin climbing at the start, then a nice rest before the crux, which is a 20 foot section of ringlocks/lb. Gorgeous, black varnished rock.

Location 

About 5 minutes to the right of Hand Solo. Look for the striking left facing corner.

Protection 

From blue alien to #1 camalot with extra 0.5 and 0.75 camalots. Good 2 bolt anchor.

This is a less worn-down, rounded version of Blue Gramma.

Admin folk…… we measured this route and it is at least 80 feet!!!!

4 BD 0.5 would come in handy…… two early and two at the crux……..
I only had one and had to walk it forever…..

Fantastic pitch on superb rock. Thoughtful, technical crux. Do NOT go by Bloom Indian Creek guide for gear rack! Don't need the very small listed. 4 - .5 Camalots would be good, and a couple .75, 2 - #1s and I placed a #2 in the one and only wider spot right before it gits on ya.
