|RAIN AND WET ROCK The sandstone around Moab is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. MORE INFO >>>|
This route is just right of The Mousetrap and to the left of Cat Walk. It's listed as route #7 in Bloom's guidebook. It has great movement and lots of variability, but it was hard giving this route more than two stars on a wall loaded with classics even by the Creek's standards.
Start in a thin corner to gain a ledge. From here pull a few chimney moves and climb a straight-in thin hands splitter to some anchors.
I used microcamalots for the start and for the chimney, up to a .5 camalot, the upper splitter takes several #1 camalots and a few #2 camalots.
