Sorrow with The Schoolmaster behind.

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 >>>


This is the obvious splitter half way between The Schoolmaster and Run Like Hell. Starts as wide hands and crushes down to tips. There is a tad bit of loose stuff at the base.


Start on the obvious ledge above the trail. The route is labeled #2 on the picture of The Schoolmaster.


From a couple of each from 3.5 friends down to .4 alien (blue). Take and extra #4 friend for the last moves.

Everyone in the team gets credit... from those climbing to those handing out cold-cuts and wagging their tails at the base.
Now get over here!

A little choss at the beginning to another great narrowing crack. A little thin up high to be a warmup for me. Double zero c3 holds it's first of 3 falls for the day!! Who woulda though?

this route is GREAT. the varnish on the inside of the tapering splitter makes it a joy to jam, and the face moves to finish up are just stellar. throws every size jam at you along with a bit of spice climbing above some tiny pro.
