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 >>>

Description 

This climb is vaguely reminiscent of Think Pink or Spaghetti Western, except that it is shorter and wider. Jam and layback up the gently overhanging corner with a nice rest just over halfway up. Fire it to the top on good laybacking.

The Bloom guide lists this as 5.11- but the plaque says 5.10+ and that felt about right.

Location 

On the far left of the Sparks Wall is this left-facing, gently overhanging crack. Plaque at the base. It's probably a 5-minute walk from where the trail meets the wall and the area of Sparks of the Tempest.

Protection 

#3 and #4 Camalots and maybe one #2 and one bigger than #4 for the top.

does this route have a plaque? we had thought that it was the slightly right facing flake that is immediately left of 'all that remains'. (??)

answered my own question - spark it up sparky is a wide, slightly overhanging left facing corner that lends itself to laybacking. it is located at the very far left side and does have a plaque.
