The Bowsprit

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


Bowsprit tackles the huge, overhanging prow of rock that marks the right margin of the Wicked Crag. Climb up slick rock past a few bolts to a funky underclinging section (making clips by your feet), then turn the corner under the prow via a jug, and crank up the underside of the prow to a cruxy stand-up move off of crimps.
