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 

I started on what is now The Man Who Knew Too Little and stepped right into hand jam then finger crack, but the direct looks possible, but harder. Steep thin hands relents to big hands, and fists/arm in a groove. Then a steep tight groove with green and purple camalots in the back relents to hands to the anchor (after an awkward, mantle-y move to stance).

Location 

Just left of The Wave. Anchor is only visible from down the talus.

Protection 

Camalot .1-.4 for the start.
Camalot .75-4 for the middle.
Save a couple .75s, .5s, and 2s for the top groove.
New Anchor as of April 2nd, 2017 (Not from me).

An 80 meter does not quite reach the ground. We used one to lower, but it required shenanigans to get the person untied and on the ground!

TIE A KNOT IN THE END OF YOUR ROPE ALWAYS!
