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 

Pull the initial roof with some sandy rock on good jams to wide jams but with face features. The rock is great after this. Above, a wide, #4 Camalot-sized crack is made easy with ample face features and a second crack inside the large crack. A second crack appears on the right above, offering nice jams and good stemming between the two. Finish on a final, slabby section with thin crack climbing in a corner with great face features.

This climb is reminiscent of Red Rocks, with great face features and varied climbing - not your typical Indian Creek jamfest.

Location 

Next route left of Little Sparky, which is the left-facing tips corner. This is a few minutes walk left of Sparks of the Tempest and where the trail comes up. Identified by a roof at the start to a wide crack to a thin crack in a right-facing corner on slabby terrain.

Protection 

A double set of cams from really small (blue Alien) to big, #4 Camalot.
