The name leaves little to the imagination, this is essentially the far left extension of the well-known Way Rambo. While Way Rambo is deservedly one of the more popular walls in the Creek, its not-so-distant neighbor languishes in relative obscurity. Left Rambo may lack the jaw-dropping lines that account for much of Way Rambo's popularity, but it is home to around 15 routes (many of which are quite good) and is well worth a visit.

The majority of the routes are in the 5.10 range, with a couple notable exceptions like the 60 meter Marathon Gasp and the shorter but fierce 38 Special. Most routes have some height to them, the majority being between 25 and 35 meters. The newest edition of the Bloom guide pretty much catalogs what's up there, save for a couple newer lines. Only a couple routes have plaques.

Being west-facing, plan on plenty of afternoon sun. Stays in the shade a bit longer than Way Rambo in the morning.

Getting There 

While Bloom recommends hiking along the old ranch road past the Way Rambo and directly up to the Left Rambo, there is no trail up to the cliff and it's a typical Creek steep talus slope. Having gone both up and down directly, I would highly suggest taking the well-built trail to Way Rambo and simply continuing along the cliff. There is no path between the leftmost routes on Way Rambo and the Left Rambo, but it's only 5-10 minutes of pretty straightforward base-walking, and could easily develop a path with a bit more activity.

The route with anchor location marked.

Bloodsport 5.11 6c+ 23 VIII- 23 E4 5c  UT : Moab Area : ... : Left Rambo
A wild and stunning line up the splitter system that cleaves the massive rectangular pillar which stands out from the far left prow of the wall, where the west face wraps around to the north. Something of an anomaly for the Creek, this thing offers 4 roofs/bulges and several corner changes; lowering from the anchor deposits you out 5-10 feet from the base. It also throws every size from blue TCU to new #5 camalot, with the majority being hands and cups. Definitely a burly outing ...[more]   Browse More Classics in UT
