Michelle leading U Name It.

  • Climbing in this area is closed from April 1 - August 15 for bighorn sheep lambing.
  • 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 

    Start in the short soft rock handcrack then step left into a left-facing fingers corner. Follow the corner to a ledge, then climb awesome thin hands splitter to a pod and over a block.

    Karl's book lists this as an Unnamed 5.11, but a plaque at the base calls the route "U Name It, 5.11-." 11- felt fair for this one, although it might be harder for those with big hands.


    U Name It is the farthest right route at the Alcove Right. It is the first route at the top of the trail. The route faces SE and it is the only route on the wall that is visible from the parking area.


    (1) blue Metolius to 0.5 BD, (2) 0.75 BD, (1) #2 friend, (3) 1 BD, (1) 2-3 BD. A few long runners are nice too.

    All the other routes at this wall have chain, but this one still has slings/webbing, so plan to replace if necessary.
