BETA PHOTO: Triple Jeopardy starting from 1/3 of the way up. ...

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 >>>


A fun moderate route and good one for beginning leaders or to set up for people on their first trip.

Just left of 3am crack on the far left side of the buttress. Look for an anchor about 40' up and consider the options. There are a variety of ways to get up there and they're all relatively fun and easy.


Various depending on which option is taken. Regardless doubles of various sizes should be sufficient.

This route is rated 5.9 in the Stewart Green book, but 5.8 seems about right. Lots of rest, lots of options, short, gear every inch of the way. Great intro leading route for this area. Unfortunately, there aren't many near this easy.

We looked for this route so a friend could do his first lead here, and after a lot of bewilderment, we realize that it very well may have fallen. The broken column collapsed! Maybe worth taking a look at, its kind of weird.

This doesn't seem like a good beginner lead to me at all. No pro for the first 20-30 ft that you have to run it out before you find the crack.

Definitely not a good beginner lead, no beginning pro with a big ledge off the back.. can you say sketchy?
