Mike Keegan making it look easy, as always!

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 >>>


Decent pitch but kind of a sandbag, Ladies First or Wee Doggie make a better warm up. Not as good as its namesake across the drainage on 2nd Meat.

Start w/ 20 easy feet on sus rock then layback and stem up a rattly fingers corner w/ occasional rests to a cruxy move at the top pulling onto a ledge.


Between Reaper Wears Pink and Wee Doggie though much closer to the former.


.4 - #2 Camalot, mainly .5 & especially .75.

The FA was Ken Kisiel and Dennis Newell. Pull the out-side of the rope to make sure your rope does not get eaten by the crack.

I found this to be more of a thin hand corner than off fingers. My .75's became way tipped out and I was wishing for a couple #1's or a Black (#5) Metolius. I would have liked at least 3 .75's, 2 #5 metolius and 2 #1's

Typical IC climbing, harder then it looks! No doubt, be very careful with pullling your rope, there is a huge chance to pinch your rope on this route. There is a cut rope filling the very top of the crack which may help to keep this from happening in the future.
