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

Description 

The Bride is a wingate tower at the end of Bride Canyon. Its pretty soft and thus a committing climb. ONe should be a solid desert leader for this outing.

Getting There 

Take the left fork off Gemini Bridges road from the Little Valley. The bride is about a quarter mile up that canyon. THe fork is just before you reach The Gooney Bird.
