|Day Canyon Cragging Routes
The route starts with harder moves through an overhang then easing to very fun 5.9 climbing on super cool pockets.
About 200 yards in the canyon you'll see impressive pockets on the right hand wall.
8 bolts, chain anchor

This was so sandy, I'd never climb it ever again.

Worth doing once, one star for the climbing and one star for the uniqueness of the route. The 3/8" bolts aren't very inspiring, and the 3rd has been used for target practice, so it now spins and sticks out of the wall some. And yeah, it's a little sandy, but come on, this is hueco choss climbing in the desert, what did you expect?

Fun climb. I would say it is a bit over rated compared to some climbs in the Moab area. It's rated 5.10c, I'd rate it 5.10a/b.
Looks like someone took a ripper on the 3rd bolt. It's sticking out of the wall about 3/4". The rock quality overall is pretty soft, which made me wish it had a 3 bolt anchor like most other climbs in the Moab area, instead of 2.
The crux is at the very beginning. It can be stick clipped. After the 2nd bolt its pretty easy. Sandy and loose though. Helmets are good here.

Very fun route. The moves to the first two bolts are definitely the crux moves. Lots of sand in the "pockets," but it's a sandstone route so I wasn't really surprised. 3rd bolt seemed sketchy.
