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


The House Of Putterman is a 250 foot tall, 200 foot wide tower with a gooseneck summit, it's hard to miss. It is directly east of Neighbor Of Putterman, the two are separated by a narrow saddle with a 30 foot tower in the middle. The south face holds the only summit line "Walden's Room" a 4 pitch 5.10+ with a little bit of everything. On the north face there are four 1 and 2 pitch lines that should be in Indian Creek with their quality.

Getting There 

To reach the House of Putterman branch right at the Merrimac/Monitor Butte sign and head up the wash until the formation is visible on the left. At the base zig zag up the slope to the North face. The South face is best approched through the saddle to the West.

Waldens room is a really fun route. I've done it twice. The first time there was no summit register the second time there was. Seems like it's probably gaining popularity. Ithought the real crux was the sandy offwidth chimney. Finger crack was more of a boulder problem and the 5.8 face climbing to the summit was weird and insecure.
