Another awesome 11 at this wall...

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 

Slightly broken start gives way to great hands in a corner then tight hands over a roof. It'd be harder but it's got thank god finger jams exactly where you need them

Location 

Just a little ways left of Go Sparky Go

Protection 

Mostly hand and finger sized gear. A blue alien keeps the start safe. The anchor was a bunch of tat pinched against the wall with washers. It's got good hangers and rings now.

Thanks for the anchor upgrade John. That was the cheapo way we used to set things up, saving on the cost of bolt hangers. Now, looking back, it seems like pennies we were saving, but back then it was a couple of burrito dinners!
