|RAIN AND WET ROCK The sandstone around Moab is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. MORE INFO >>>|
The route follows a left-facing mostly hands corner for about 40 feet to a ledge with stacked blocks and a two-bolt anchor. There is a short wide pod in the middle of the corner. Sporty moves on fractured rock lead to the summit, then downclimb back to the ledge with bolted anchor. Expect 5.10 moves both in the crack and above the bolts.
The FA was on Martin Luther King Day (1/18) 2016.
The tower is located about 40' to the right of Unnamed #10 in K3's book, on the left side of Windy Ridge. The route climbs the south side of the tower.
Rack: (1) #.75, (1) #1, (2) #2, (1) #4, (1) #6
IMPORTANT: I left a cord and quicklink around the summit blocks as mental pro for the downclimb back to the bolted anchor. I did not weight the cord, so proceed with caution above the bolts, both on the way up and down!
