Moving through the crux. Great stone, cool movemen...

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


A nice, "moderate" route located in the heart of the hardperson's paradise that is the Wicked Crag. Start by making a few stemming moves up a corner. Commit to the face on left via a nice sequence on beautiful, varnished crimps. Work through the distinct crux near the third bolt, and dance your way to the anchors on increasingly easy terrain.

Feel free to post up if you have any FA information or additional beta. Alternatively, if you are offended that I (as a "non-local") posted the route, and wish me to remove it from the database, I can do that too. I just felt it was a shame that no one had posted it yet, given that it is one of the best at the grade in the area.


Just right (downstream) of the very steep routes of "The Wave" area at the Wicked Crag. Just left of the beautiful slab testpiece Techno Christ.

The route climbs a varnished black face with a smooth, wildly overhanging arete on its left.


Bolts (6?) to anchors

(Spray Alert)
This was one of my first onsights at this grade - maybe THE first. Amazing route. Mill Creek has got to be one of the best sport climbing crags anywhere in the world.
