Pulling into the slot.

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 >>>


This route climbs a right facing corner that is essentialy all offwidth. Start with easy offwidth up to a good stance on a blocky face feature. Continue up steep, overhung offwidth to fists/tight fists. Pull out of the overhanging fists into a flared 8" pod (crux) and easy wide hands get you to the anchor.


30 feet left of MMM on the far left side of the buttress.


Sizes in camalots: 2 each #3,4 and 5. A # 3.5 and #4.0 friend might be good alternatives.

The transition from the tight fists into the flared pod was tough for me. I would love to get some other opinions on the grade for this one.
