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


Climb good fingers (yellow aliens) with no feet to desperate tip locks (tight greens) below the anchor.


Between Sig Saur and Coyne Crack Simulator


6 Yellow aliens, 3 green

I've seen this called "fairy tales," and that the FA MAY have been done by Peewee, from Quebec.

This climb made a couple of my fingers numb for a week or two. Otherwise, it's actually pretty cool.

I aided up, put the anchor in and then one-hung it and never went back. On a separate trip I told Pee Wee about it and he went and sent it. So, yes FA is Pee Wee and he named it Fairy Tales.

This route should be moved to between new routes Cocked and Desert Eagle.

If you're like me and challenged when it comes to alien sizes I was able to get orange(tight) and yellow TCUs and .3s and .4s.

This climb is a lot like Sig Sauer but without all the nice footholds.

That last body length really wants to fuck your pinkys up. Great splitter!
