Pat on Torpedo Bay. Nov 2006

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 

Very splitter fingers right off the deck to hands-free rest to very splitter ring-locks. 5.12c, 50ft.

Location 

The first route to the right of Nina at the Shipyard. A very clean splitter with painted chain anchor, steel biner to lower from and a plaque that won't be readable for much longer.

Protection 

Triples of yellow alien/tcu to #2 friend.

I remember the bottom crux being very bouldery.. Painful locks with no feet. Having a set of nuts is very useful for the middle section, which after some breakage, is kinda funky.

Top section is about as splitter green camelots as it gets.

This is a great route but there is no way that its 12c when compaired to other 12's in the area. The stance in the middle makes it a very reasonable onsight and a set of stoppers, as MIYG recommended, is definitely the ticket for the middle section.

short section of burly, desperate fingers at the bottom to a no hands rest. Splitter .75's to the anchors. A quickdraw is handy as the fixed carabiner is fairly difficult to clip.
