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 >>>


Superb thin-hands and hands climbing in a right-facing corner on great rock. A pod up high, shortly before the anchor is the greatest difficulty for most. Great face features throughout this climb offer ample rests and a break for the feet.

[editors note: there were 2 entries for the same route. i kept the older entry and have included the second entry with these notes.]

per Devin Fin 'mostly hands lil wide at the top but not hard, 10a'


Just left of Variety Pack. Scramble onto a ledge to reach this right facing corner.

[per Devin Fin - 'around the right side up on a ledge. cool hang']


Many red to gold Camalots with a green and a #4.

[per Devin Fin - 'red camalots to #4s'

Anchor is in bad shape and needs to be upgraded ASAP. Two 3/8" bolts, right one moves a lot and is very loose. Left one also moves some. Didn't want to trust my life to one sort of good 3/8" bolt, so left a #2 camalot as back up, equalized with the better bolt. Hopefully the new anchor fairies can get this one fixed soon.

I may have double listed this route. There's an Unnamed 5.10 already included here but it doesn't say anything about being in a corner, which would seem to be some obvious beta for finding the route. Perhaps someone can clear up the confusion and can feel free to remove this route if it is indeed double listed.

The Bloom guide lists this route as 5.11- but it's probably more like 5.10+, in my opinion.

This route is a splitter, just to the left of Variety Pack. Great warm up.

There is a placard at the base that reads "Hookers and Blow 10+". Great climb.

I can confirm that this was unnamed 5.11- in Bloom's old book... Definitely harder than 10-
