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 little hoodoo has been climbed before without the bolts. It's possible to fling the rope over the hoodoo while you and a partner are on two of the other summits, then just fix the rope on one side of the hoodoo and jug up the other side.

while tossing and jugging is normally my first choice; we very much enjoyed having a route up. a great intro to aid for the average joe. no "real" aid gear required. we used a couple of 24" runners and a cam to pull on. a short 5 easy scramble up gets you to a ledge for a blind clip of the first bolt. not sure on the 5.9 (perhaps we did it "wrong"). short, steep, fun. nice work guys, thank you.

The substantial block we stood on to set the first bolt collapsed as the second started up. Glad to hear you can still reach the first clip, even if blind. On several occasions I have taken folks up here and not been able to toss a rope over the third due to high winds. Being the desert, I supposed this might have been the experience of others so decided to make the bare minimal aid line so as to insure summiting all seven was a possibility once you were up there. Perhaps a mistake.
