Jim on the summit

RAIN AND WET ROCK The sandstone around Moab is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. MORE INFO >>>


This Tower is visible from the top of any of the Bridger Routes . It lies in a gap in the Lavender Butte ,the next Butte NW of BJ.The climb starts up a crack system on the NW side of the Tower. Two pitches to a fine summit and great views towards the six shooters


The Tower was approached from a road south of the Six Shooters. It lies in a break in the Lavender Butte . This break is drawn in on the map in the New Indian Creek Guide.

A little more info on what I think was this route..after some scrambling the climb is steep hands that quickly goes to steep baggy fists. This leads to a giant chockstone that was pretty nerve racking to get around. The second pitch is a wide crack that's quite a bit easier than the first pitch. I wish I had more #4 camalots and a #5 or two. A fun climb, but felt a bit like a gamble getting around that block, which would be game over if it gave way. A double 60 m rope rappel gets you to the ground.

Someone beat me to the second ascent judging from the webbing at the top. I'm guessing I was the third or fourth.
