BETA PHOTO: Climbing pitch 2
|RAIN AND WET ROCK The sandstone around Moab is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. MORE INFO >>>|
I don't know the tower or route name for sure but it is a nice, casual route with short drive and a short hike
The tower barely sits off the wall and has a bird beak like summit
If you are looking at the tower from the front of the prow the route starts to the right(roadside).
Climb a varied hand crack to a large ledge.Build a belay here. Then climb easy wide crack into the chimney behind the tower. Follow chimney to the summit putting protection in a finger crack inside the chimney.
Climb the route from the road side of the tower and rap from summit bolts to the ground on the other side of the tower.
Bring your standard rack. You will need fingers to 4 camalot sizes. There are two bolts at the top of the tower

Is this the first pitch of the tower route?

Is this the route on the right side of the wall with an anchor up on the ledge? If so the first pitch is a nice 5.9 cragging pitch in its own right.

Bring two 60m ropes for the rappel and watch the rope ends. Even with two 60s, there's just inches to spare!

No need for the #4 camalot.

During the first ascent we climbed it from the other side (the side you rap from). 1st pitch is a changing crack just below the tower chimney 5.10
