Today we leave the Needles district, get a Moab climbing guidebook, and decide to check out Potash Road. It’s the perfect place to find a little gentle introduction to climbing on Navajo sandstone. After a fun, warm exploration we continue to the Island in the Sky district to spend the night. Slides:
She-la The Peeler 5.9 – We scramble up a gully and put a toprope on this slab route. It’s been a while since we climbed slab! There’s a direct start I couldn’t quite do.
Slab Route 5.7 – Ann leads this well-bolted climb left of She-la. Not bad for her first outing of the year!
30 Seconds Over Potash 5.8 – a very fun dihedral route, good for getting my trad head back. All sorts of moves on this one.
