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


A shallow ramp/corner with a crack for protection leads to an a couple insecure moves to gain a loose chimney. Once in the chimney, a stance is reached, and the climb is finished through a very short squeeze to the top of the pitch. From here unrope and work your way to the top of the Chair.


Approach and park as for the SE Route, but hike around to the opposite side of the formation. Pretty much the only option anywhere over there.


Standard trad rack.
