WH LF Corner

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 

Two meters of easy choss leads to a perfect, crisp wide hands crack in a left-facing corner. A couple of bulges make this a fun, strenuous pitch.

The anchor is three bolts, 3/8 inch if I remember correctly, and tat with two thin rap rings.

Location 

About 100 meters left of Black Uhuru is a crisp left-facing corner with a continuous wide hand that goes through a couple bulges. I made a plague that reads " " 5.10+ 100 ft.

Protection 

Enough #3 camalots to climb 80 feet of sustained wide hands plus a #1, #2 and #4. #4 friends are useful.

For soft 5.10 leaders like me, a good rack is C4 3s and one 2 (for the first part of the good crack). I suggest a name of "wavy suicide" because it looks like wavy gravy and slices the wrists. Best 5.10 pitch on the wall?

I think this is probably a duplicate entry of the "Unnamed 5.10" that is just to the right. Would anybody be upset if I merged this route into that route, but kept this route's name?

Thanks.

I don't think these are the same routes. There is a wide hand crack through changing corners just left of Lt Uhuru then further left is this route that starts with choss.
