Jeff on pitch 1.
|RAIN AND WET ROCK The sandstone around Moab is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. MORE INFO >>>|
Start up a short OW then move into a chimney with a bolt. Continue up placing gear occasionally. Place some gear in a roof over your head then look down through the notch to a ledge on the other side of the tower to find anchors. Down climb or lower the 10'. Anchor is 2 half inch bolts. 5.9, 100'.
Climb up continuing to stay on the river side to the actual notch. Clip the bolt and transfer to aid mode. 6 bolts, 3 drilled pins with the occasional gear placement and 5 bat hook holes will get you to the top. A stick clip should make it possible to skip the hooking. Anchor on top is also 2 half inch bolts. 5.9 C1+.
One rappel to the ground. It would be close with 60 meter ropes.
This route climbs to the notch between the tower and main wall. Start on the side that faces away from the Green River.
Doubles from .3-5 camalot should be plenty, draws, runners, two hooks for bathooking, stickclip?, two 70 meter ropes, tat for the rappel anchor.
