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 >>>

10a- fun one move wounder in the dihedral. For bolts to anchor, no gear needed for 5.3 start.

This is the same start as RP City. For RP City, climb the easy blocky crack (same for Vanilla Cream), then move out left and into the thin seem to a 2 bolt anchor. See route description for RP City.

Would be nice to see people use camoflouged bolts these days.

This really is a one move wonder in the dihedral. It looks improbable until you get to the dihedral.

Actually RP City begins about 40 feet to the right of Freezer burn. There is a bolt near the start just above the furthest right of the ledge system. It then follows a corner to a small roof to the anchor.

The anchor with the tat is an unknown route. I know the ledge just below the anchor is loaded with death choss. aid route?

Eric, you are listing RP City incorrectly. If you are getting this from Rock Climbing Utah they have shown it incorrectly but describe it correctly needing "loads of rp's" The route you describe doesn't take any rp's. If you climb the route you mention above and RP City described on this site you will agree.

Did this last spring and was great. Gear can easily be taken for the start, but as mentioned not entirely needed. Working the left facing dihedral is a little tricky but very fun!
