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.

This route forces you to stretch horizontally for holds. It becomes more runout the farther right you reach, so try to follow straight up to your anchor.

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.
