Description 

The Hindu is the tall skinny spire on the right side of Onion Creek Road. It is the first tower reached after many creek crossings. The tower is on surpsingly good Cutler sandstone, and is an excellent introduction to Cutler climbing. Both routes on the tower have gone free at very high standards, though the Maverick is still a superb moderate clean aid climb.


Getting There 

Park at a BLM campsite just underneath the tower. Scramble up mud and rock benches to the land bridge, which is followed to the base of the tower. All routes on the Hindu are approached from this land bridge. The approach is only about 20 minutes from the car.

Maverick 5.9 5c 17 VI HVS 5a C2  UT : Moab Area : ... : The Hindu
The Maverick is a really fun 4 pitch route. Stevie Haston freed it at 5.13a, but most climbers aid it at 5.9 A2. It goes clean very easily-don't even think about using a hammer on this line.Pitch 1 - Climb either 5.8R or A2 to a beautiful 5.13a or A1 splitter fingercrack. 60 feet to a fixed belay.Pitch 2 - Either climb 5.9+ directly left from the belay, or aid A1 up to a fixed pendulum point and swing left about 15 feet. Both ways reach easy 5.6 mud to a good belay ledge. 50 feet.Pitch 3 - ...[more]   Browse More Classics in UT

The Hindu is 3.0 miles east of River Road (Hwy 128) on Onion Creek. The dirt road and creek crossings were fine for my 2WD passenger car (very little clearence) in late May.
