Ben Riley going for it..

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 >>>


Can be done a number of ways. As the name implies, it's usually done as a one move wonder.

Either way, start with your left hand on the arete with more than a few different foot options. Right hand logically goes to the good side pull out right but I'm sure there are many ways to HUCK.


The leftmost arete on the side facing Scoopula.


Pads and a spotter would be nice.

This problem is quite a stretch for those with a smaller wingspan. Can feel easy for those blessed in that area, and nearly impossible if your arms are short...I'm 5'9" and it feels HARD for me.

I'd be interested in hearing some of the alternative betas to get around the big 'huck'. I've tried a myriad of ways...
