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