Carson at the base of the crack.

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 >>>


I don't know the name or FA, any info would be welcomed. This climb is mostly OW. It starts with wide hands to fist and goes to a chimney before reaching a huge ledge to belay a second. Depending on your OW ability you may need more or less gear, but the last 35 feet or so are protected by a #6 BD or Friend.


From were you park go under the gate and walk along the fence staight to the wall. The climb shares anchors with a climb to the right (rating unknown) and is just right of a fist crack that may have anchors.


We used BD camalots. Sizes were #3(4), #4(4), #5(2), and at least one #6. Two bolt belay/rap with webbing can be backed with a #2. 2 60m rope rap, or one 70m rope.
