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 >>>

Description 

A neat way to reach the taunting upper finger crack above the Torpedo Bay anchors. A beautiful steep finger splitter headwall.

At the top of Nina, clip the anchor and bust some quick compression moves to pull out right onto the slab. Clip a high bolt and step up to the hand rail. A long stem right gains the crack - establish a jam, drop in, and go! Powerful locks with almost no feet. Anchor with chains on the face left of the crack

Protection 

Rack for Nina plus ~4x 0.5s, 1x 0.4, 1x 0.3

Location 

The Nina extension. Continues above Nina, clipping a single bolt, and gaining a headwall crack on the right.
