This area is a popular destination for river folks, as it has many campsites garnished with nice sandy beaches and Precambrian gneiss outcrops. There are 3 small towers here, with routes on 2 of them. The tower on the right is Ron's Tower, named after Ron Kirk, who had a tragic accident while attempting the middle unclimbed tower.
This area is actually in Colorado, but only a couple of miles from the Utah border. Launch on the Colorado River at Loma. Float about 14 miles to the Black Rocks. These towers are obvious to the south, at the entrance to Moore Canyon.
