nice name fitting for this route

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 >>>


Pitch 1: is just to the left of True Love and Mawwage. Starts in a blocky corner to some sweet stemming to a splitter that goes through a notch into some more blocky climbing to the belay.

Pitch 2: Goes up the obvious clean OW splitter to the anchors on the right side.

Can be rapped with a 70, a 60 MIGHT make it


It is just to the left of True Love and Mawwage.

I don't know.... His offwidth is bigger than yours.. And takes more to protect. He might have a bigger wiener.

damn, with all this hub bub i'm gonna have to climb this route and see what the hell is going on here.

is there a scene in the movie where the main bad guy says he is going to have to build a better brute squad? i think i watched it in high school, so its been a while.

Dang I'm bummed I missed the rant, heard it was a good one.

Just was feeling sassy when I posted it and was bummed the name was taken, turns out I skimped on the research.

It's certainly chossy below the belay on the first pitch and that's a bummer since the second pitch is such a fun moderate OW.

Devin, you'll have to check out the new route you saw me on, it's pretty bitchin'.
