Description 

Located about 6 miles outside of the town of Green River in southeastern Utah is a small hill topped by a radio tower. The south side of this hill boasts a little-known boulder field, and a 20-25 ft sandstone tower provides some fun Top Rope lines. The tower is about a 2 minute walk from the radio tower.


Getting There 

From Moab, take 131 North to I-70 West. Follow signs for Green River.

Stand-start for an easy ascent. For a challenge, sit-start. There's a decent pinch for your right hand. A solid four-finger hold exists above eye-level on the left. Place feet to the left and use your left arm to lift yourself. Immediately shoot about 6 inches farther left. From there, walk your hands up a right-leaning crack to a nice lip for the top-out....[more]   Browse More Classics in UT

Great climbing on Wingate downriver... Trin-Alcove, the Gooseneck, and many other places have superb climbing. Pack a boat or two and have a backcountry/river-trip/climbing experience!

there can be some bouldering here and there but most of the rock is non-conducive. Better to just enjoy the float and bloat. The wind will keep you pulling on your oars enough you won't miss a thing.
