The route

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

Description 

Climb a tight fingers offset-splitter to a rest/pod, then continue with wide fingers (also offset) to another rest/pod; here the crack widens to the .5 /.75 Camalot range with decent feet to a two-bolt anchor with slings.

Location 

A small patch (and only patch)of good rock on a W/NW facing wall. There is a small pickle-shaped tower just around the corner with an unknown route on it.

Drive about 100 yds south of The Gooney Bird and park off the road. The route is off to the left a few hundred feet (look for tan slings). This route stays shady and is on the only good section of rock in the area. Nice short (1 minute) approach. Has plaque @ base.



Protection 

yellow and red aliens (.4 & .5 Camalots) for the meat of the route. Hand sized pieces can be used to save gear here and there in a couple of pods. Save some .75's for the top.
