RAIN AND WET ROCK The sandstone around Moab is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. MORE INFO >>>


A few mantles lead to the slot/chimney between the fingers. Run it out for 50' before getting in your first piece. Climb the chimney, using both pillars.


Climb right up the middle... right between the lines.
I added new cord to the anchor in 10/09. Rap 80' to the deck.

I put in the anchor in the late 90's, someone had climbed it before and had rapped off a single piece called a "teton". It's a really cool unique climb, although I don't remember it being as hard as 5.10. I always wondered who did the 1st???

we drove in starting from a driveway down river from moonflower then 4x4 back up following the power lines. short easy walk in flip flops to the climb. gary did a SIC job on his first gear lead. run out for sure. a fixed pin would make this thing a lot safer even though it's fairly solid in the chimney. small fingers for your first good gear and bring one 3, 4, and 5 camalot for the upper section. we replaced the webbing. two fixed pins with a quick link for the anchor. way fun and interesting climb. 5.9

Fun Climb. In the shade for most of the morning, so its a good summer route.

Okay, that's one of the coolest features I've ever seen, yet it doesn't have a name!? Please, someone give it a great name, like "Slotzilla" or something (but not that, obviously, that's a really dumb name).

Known by some as the french fries. Probably has other names too.
