RAIN AND WET ROCK The sandstone around Moab is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. MORE INFO >>>
This route is on the obvious slab towards the north side of the Sunshine Wall. It starts about twenty feet right of an obvious crack which runs through a small roof, and ten feet right of Learning Curve.
A large ledge is reached about 20 feet up. Either go left and scramble up to the ledge, or do a direct start with a bolt (probably 5.8). From the ledge, follow a dirty seam and smear up the light colored rock. Then follow a direct line up to the anchors on the red rock when the crack ends. Rappel with either two ropes or one 60m rope barely reaches the upper ledge.
Toprope this after leading Learning Curve (5.7) or Love Hurts (5.9).
