Dave starting up the 1st pitch.

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 >>>


Start in a left facing corner that soon goes from hands to OW, and when possible move right and climb twin cracks on the right wall. When they come together move back and into the chimney. Climb squeeze chimney for 50' with no pro until it constricts and forces you out to a bolt on the right wall. Climb past two more bolts to the anchors.
Pitch two was started but not completed.


The route is on the left side of the wall and is the prominent S-shaped chimney that reaches from the bottom to the top.


bring triple #3 and #4 camalots, one #4.5 and #5,and one each of the smaller sizes.
