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 

the technical crux is probably the first 15 feet. wicked fun dirt pile with a cool tunnel thru a window. a little dirty. finger crack gradually widens. #4 or 5 camalot for the second crux.

Location 

starts up a finger/hand crack on the east side of the tower. single 70 rap to the deck from bolts and cord.

Protection 

standard desert rack. one (or two) #5 camalots. no stoppers needed.
