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 thought this was a great route and made me remember the creek isn't always about plugin' & chuggin'. I think I had preconceived ideas about the grade and being able to on-sight 5.10 in the creek, but I should have known a route named "Wrench" would pack a punch. The Wrench Route isn't necessarily a "perfect splitter" but holds some great movement and architecture. When it gets down to it is just burly climbing. The rack recommendation was pretty spot on, however, I doubled up on the #6s. I knocked out my first #6 as I climbed past the initial crux entering the chimney. Also getting to the anchor I knocking out my other #6 as I climbed past(perhaps bad technique/ fear thruching). I might recommend a Big Bro equivalent instead of doubling up on the #6s. It could help keeping the rope from pulling on your gear as you enter the chimney; just a thought. Thanks again DF for putting in the time! Looking forward to scoping out more of your routes in the future.
