Captain Collywobble Rock Climbing
|RAIN AND WET ROCK The sandstone around Moab is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. MORE INFO >>>|
This is the bulky, 200-foot-tall formation about a couple hundred yards southeast of Pixie Stick. The climb we did is on the north side where the rock is cleanest.
Drive the White Rim just past Monument Basin. Park at a disused road blocked by a log. Hike south then east along the old road, then as this winds north, leave it and follow the east-facing rim and look for the tower. Eventually you'll see the skinny Pixie Stick and four bulkier towers in a line. This is the closest in of these. Either rap from the rim, hike down a long, easy gully at the end of the closed road, or find a steep scramble close to the Pixie Stick.
