Shelly Malkin on Sunkiss

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 >>>


The route begins on the approach ledge to The Scar. Climb through a series of bulges to a good anchor.

Did a hold break on this one above the top roof? Felt way hard for 11d!

I thought this route was 5 star. Rating right on, albeit a different style. Very geometric and thought provoking body positioning between decent rests. Get on it! No mussey hooks on top of this one like all the other Scar routes.
