Liba Kopeckovalittle scramble  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Apr 21, 2017

Liba Kopeckova

Little scramble on loose rock, I did not even use the rope on the way up. We tried a traverse, but had to retrace back to cca middle of the formation to rappel down.
Windy day, great views, climb not so great.

Kimberly, Kessler, Shaylee, and I met Matt Lemke in Moab in order to head for the Fisher Towers. First we dropped off the bag of stuff we found on Elephant Butte.

After reaching the trailhead, we headed for Dock Rock. Impish was covered in snow and ice, so we climbed the slightly harder Chimney Variation which was in the sun. Once again, Matt lead and Kessler cleaned. Shaylee attempted the climb, but decided to come down. I followed and met the others on the belay ledge. The climb was pretty dirty.

Once on the belay ledge we did a very exposed traverse on the east side and to the summit. We had to do a two stage rappel off the icy and snowy north face. The rope was just short of being long enough for a one stage rappel.

After climbing Dock Rock, we headed for Lizard Rock. Matt lead the climb. It was a good one. Kessler followed and made the summit. I was very near the summit, but decided not to pull the final move above the flake. I wish I would have tried it. The skin and some of the muscle on arms were severely burned off in an industrial accident several years ago and I don't have the confidence on rock that I used to.

Climbed Impish with Jamie. Nice way to get a desert rock noob like me to the top, which I appreciated after having such a hard time on some of the other sandstone in Moab! The rap was dirty though, really watch yourself and your partners when you pull the rope (and don't look up unless you want dirt in your eye).

I led the chimney on the NE side of the rock. The climb was very dirty and not too aesthetic. The second pitch was a long traverse across the top...also not too fun. Lizard Rock after was much better :)
