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


Good fingers for the first fifty feet leads to a thin crux layback sequence (as the name would imply) at the top.


This route ascends the left facing dihedral immediately right of Power Line and shares the same anchor.


The crux takes green aliens.

Mostly yellow aliens. One green (red C3 / blue TCU) towards the top. Red / grey alien down lower. I thought this was pretty easy for 11+ give the feet. Awesome route even if it is a little soft.
