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


This is a finger/thin hands crack about 30' right of Working Class Hero and is obvious from that route.
It has some cruxy moves going past a slight bulge and is good finger locks much of the way. Look for small edges to the right and left. The route ends on a platform with some loose rubble (careful!).

There is a 2nd pitch OW called Thicker than Water, which I haven't climbed.


This is the thin hands crack leading to the anchor about 30' right of Working Class Hero. The anchor is obviously visible from Working Class Hero.


About 2 cams each from #0.5 camalot to #2 camalot.
2 bolt anchor at the top. 1 rope gets you up, and down.

Excellent route. The grade will depend on your finger/hand size. I think 10+/11- is fair. Watch out for the loose stuff at the top.

Fun, fun route! Great fingers for my fat hands. Marginal footholds are integral to the crux.

Anyone have any info on the second pitch of this thing? In the first picture, it’s the crack in the left facing corner that starts on the platform above the 10+. IIRC, looked wide at the start and then narrowed to fists maybe a third of the way up; slings maybe 70 feet up. It looked above my pay grade, so I didn’t give it a go, but may have to try it this year.

The second pitch is Thicker Than Water - a super rad offwidth - goes at 10+ or so.

The climb is 0.75 camalots for about the first half and then widens. The High on Moab book says it is 5.9. I thought it was 5.11-
