  • Raptor Closures 2017: Check status and details at: nps.gov/arch/planyourvisit/roc... -Read about Anchor Replacement and Restrictions in Arches National Park
  • 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 

    Climb starts just left of Melanoma Shuffle on Science Friction Slab. (Left most bolted line) Edge and smear up the left side on bumps, melanoma knobs, and waves then cruise up the easy slab finish to the two bolt anchor with weathered slings. Climb is similar to Melanoma Shuffle only on thinner holds. Crux is between bolts 2 and 3.

    Protection 

    10 bolts to a two bolt anchor with weathered slings that need replaced (I will bring chains to fix anchor next time I am in the area). You need two ropes to rap, saw a group run 15' short using an 80M. We belayed from the top and had the follower tail a second rope then simule rappelled.
