BETA PHOTO: The line!!

  • Raptor Closures 2017: Check status and details at: nps.gov/arch/planyourvisit/roc... -Read about Anchor Replacement and Restrictions in Arches National Park
  • 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 >>>

  • Description 

    Chossy at the bottom (perhaps the crux itself!) with a strange, unprotectable overhang to get to the crack. The crack moves effortlessly from fingers to hands and back again. Brilliant line.

    Location 

    Stay above the valley on the North side of the third valley (Easternmost) in the region. The line is the most obvious, and beautiful in the entirety of the sector.

    Protection 

    Camalots, 2s, 3s, & 4s. Med-large hexes also work well.
