Brown Banana and the stick-less clip
|RAIN AND WET ROCK The sandstone around Moab is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. MORE INFO >>>|
Route is located 15 feet left of Banana Peel. Face climbing past 5 bolts to 3 bolt and chain anchor. Climb just right of the bolt line on better rock. You can make the route a bit harder by climbing left of the last 2 bolts.

FA climbed just to the right of the bolt line up better quality rock. The bolts were placed to the left in hopes of keeping folks from straying too far to the right on to easier ground. Clips are from good stances and shouldn't be reachy.

Should probably be upgraded to 5.9+ since the holds have apparently rounded out since the first ascent. Sigh . . . sandstone.
