|RAIN AND WET ROCK The sandstone around Moab is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. MORE INFO >>>|
Start at the southernmost base of the tower. P1: Follow Beak seam to crack, then pendulum right into another loose beak seam. There is a very large, very detached flake on this pitch that the leader would be wise to not drop on his belayer. P2: A rope stretcher. Travel up and right to finally meet up with the Forrest/Briggs after 185 rope stretching feet. P3-4: Follow the Forrest/Briggs to the summit. P3 climbs the arete. P4 goes straight to the summit.
Southern end of the Citadel. The beak seam that you start on is pretty obvious.
5-#1 beaks, 5-#2 beaks, 5-#3 beaks, 2-3 spectres, triple rack of cams including offset aliens to #2 camalots, 2-#3 camalots, and a 4 and 5 camalot. On the first two pitches, no bolts were placed on lead. Two bolts are present on the top of P1 for an anchor.
On P1, tensioning over into next beak seam.
Flying the Jolly Roger at the top of P1
Rapping from the top of P2
