just leaving the ground on pinhead
|RAIN AND WET ROCK The sandstone around Moab is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. MORE INFO >>>|
Great lead for the 5.10 climber that will challenge you to stay on top of gear placements through the bottom. It is located right of Astro Lad and is the next route immediately right of Potash Sanction. Make your way up using an array of cracks and features. Sometime you'll probably want to angle left to the dihedral. Tricky moves set you up for a very short chimney session and then the reach out and around from the chimney to clip the anchors. To bypass the chimney move right and then left again above/around it until you can stand on the ledge in the chimney and reach anchors. There is a second pitch, but it hardly seems worth the effort. Anybody comment? As always on Wall Street use your own hardware while your crew topropes this.
All gear, no bolts or pitons. You can probably bring a single set.

This is totally incorrect information as far as the anchors on Potash. The are replaced regularly and are not webbing on most. We TR these anchors everyday. Please use draws if you are going to have large parties on the same rope. By the way there is no mystery at all that this is Pinhead....

this route is pretty good, you can climb to the upper anchors in the right facing corner and still lower with a 60. there's a bolt where it gets thin up high.

I really enjoyed this route- it had good feet! It climbed a lot like a non-desert route which was a fun change of pace. The difficulty seemed to stay pretty moderate with one or two more strenuous moves at the top.
