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 

Pitch 1- 5.9 fists in a left-facing corner lead up and right through a 5.10 squeeze to a larger 5.9 chimney. Continue up the chimney through a tunnel and up onto a large ledge at the base of an incredible 90' #2-2 1/2 friend splitter going out of view...(150')

Pitch 2- After 90' of straight-in, straight-up thin hands(5.11b/c),the crack changes into an arching rightward dihedral with perfect hand jams(5.10+), leading to fingers and a blonde ledge with a 2-bolt anchor.(120') Incredible Pitch!!!

Pitch 3- Step left on a blonde ledge from the anchor into an acute left-facing corner. Chubby hands leads up through a triangular roof into a magnificent splitter face crack. About 80' in this crack(5.10b) until it peters out. Here, face climb left and onto a ledge, and then climb the left-facing system(5.9+) leads to the large summit ledge. Traverse the ledge rightward back to the solo which leads to the rim.(140')

Protection 

Full desert rack-thin to large, Extra 2-1/2" friends! Red camalot's too small and yellow camalots are too big

red camalots seemed to work fine. 4 or 5 should do
