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 >>>


2 nice looking pitches, typical of Indian Creek I still only did the first one.

Start with heads up maneuvering up somewhat broken rock. When you gain the splitter it's one move of ring locks until you're in the handcrack, which is longer and more strenuous than it looks.


The start of this pitch is easily identifiable by where the trail goes between the wall and the prominent mini block/tower (maybe 20' tall).


Smaller stuff for the start, then doubles or triples of #2 and #3 BD C4s.

second pitch is also really good. IIRC off-fingers/thin hands to good hands and back down. upper headwall crack on the first pitch is definitely more strenuous than it looks, big hands with sometimes awkard feet. great route overall.
