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


Formerly the two pitch aid climb "Acromaniac," Concepcion links the two pitches into what is one of the raddest pitches in the desert.


Up Day Canyon about 15 minutes on the right.

Well the second pitch is one of the best splitters around. What I am curious about is: since when do we simply rename a route cause it went free????? Can you just imagine the uproar if we renamed all the routes on El Cap or in Zion for example just cause they have now been freed???? IMHO I totally disagree with this tactic, especially out of respect to those who put up the route.

Yeah, that route sucks.. They should just tear it down. While we're at it, we should incorporate Colorado ethic in all desert climbing area's. It is the best desert-in-rado after all.

Ya, imagine the uproar that would tear it's way thru the Valley if someone free'd the classic East Face of Washington Column and then re-named it something silly like "Astroman"............ not defending this practice, but i feel anybody who calls Astroman by that name, and not Hardings original name, should stop whining about Potter re naming a route unless they would like to also like to whine about Bachar, Kauk, and Long doing the same. Most people still call "playing Hooky" by it's original name, Concepcion is the only one that really stuck with the new name in the Moab area.
