Sorrow with The Schoolmaster behind.

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

Description 

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.

Location 

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

Protection 

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

Kalous!
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.
