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


Tough to just past the 3rd bolt. Once you hit the undercling/sidepull crack you're good. Some locals will tell you it's 12b, but the first bolt has the name and grade etched in.


this route is the second one you come to after you climb down the circus ladder. It's got a left leaning sidepull start and probably the lowest first bolt in Mill Creek.


6 bolts (or so) to anchors

I did the route...felt hard for 12c, but I'd go with whatever.

To defend the grade given by aimeerose, 12d is etched in steel on the first bolt.

The first bolt used to be several feet higher, but the ground has actually risen under this route, hence the start is easier. That is why it's considered .12c now.

12D is etched on the 1st bolt but the route got easier, as previously mentioned, when erosion filled in the start. Most people think its 12c after they have the moves wired, esp the first move, but there have been plenty of tantrums witness prior to the red-point chip-down.
