RAIN AND WET ROCK The sandstone around Moab is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. MORE INFO >>>

Description 

Stunning two pitch route -- fingers to offwidth. The second pitch features a wildly twisting, offset offwidth helix referred to as the "squiggles."

Location 

Dark Passenger is on Dead Man's Buttress one system to the right of Dragon's Lair. You can't miss it as the second pitch is quite unique.

Protection 

Pitch 1 (5.12) .5 through BD 5 and two fixed pins.
Pitch 2 (5.11) Bolts, fixed stopper and gear to BD 6. This pitch is R rated if you are too short to reach the right crack.
