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 >>>


Sandstone slab with two bolts on route to an I-bolt anchor. The crux is after the first bolt. A nice climb for those in your party not into the typical offerings of Indian Creek or those who's hands need some rest.


Left most route on the Friction Slab.


Coupla draws for the two bolts and something for the anchor.

Holds may have washed off, climb is now harder than 5.7. Anchor slings need to be replaced. Not worth doing.

Originally rated 5.6.
Also, isn't this route the rightmost route on the wall and not the left.

Your thinking of Orion's Bow regarding the first ascent party. This route is older than that. I remember doing a beer soaked group ascent on a CC block break in 81 or so. I seem to remember either Steve Cheney or Earl Wiggins put it in. The harder one to the left was put up by Paul Hunt. It's comes in at a scary 5.11.

I wonder if you were on White Waltz, a route I think of Bill Feiges.

That was put up around 1979 and the route immediately to its left is Laurel, the 2 pitch 5.11 of Hunt and Bill Robins. Sundance is the 3rd route to the right of Laurel. I thought that Hunt's first name was Peter not Paul?

I thought that Sundance was put up in May by Webster and Orion's Bow in October of the same year, '84.

IMO This route is not worth doing. As of the date mentioned 4/30/09 there is only 2 bolt in 70 feet to the anchor. Probably won't ground out but there is a chance without an attentive belay on the runouts. Holds are zero and 99% of this wall is covered in lichen due to infrequent travel making most feet pretty polished. This is all capped with a manky 3 pin anchor and shredding equalized webbing to the rap-ring. One route for the boldly stupid, such as my self ,trying to get in what I thought would be a nice early morning warm up before hitting the splitters in the canyon. It's Idian Creek, you came here for SPLITTERS!!! Don't do this route unless you own an electric toothbrush or have done enough methamphetamine to stay focused scrubbing holds.
