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


This climb is about 11 miles up Kane Springs Road, and on the right. It is easy to see, find, and you can drive right up to the formation. It is not a "tower" , but a large clump of rocks; does have a summit.

A friend and I free climbed up a sandy chimney on the southern aspect of Shelbyville a couple of years back. We weren't sure where the route started and we had been drinking Wild Turkey all day so there's no telling at what grade it went at but I'd guess 5.9 tops. We topped out the first pitch at some fixed anchors and finished per the original route, so it's not necessary to aid to reach this summit.
