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


Start on left of spire. Tunnel behind and up chimney to large block. Tunnel under (serious drag)straight up nice cracks and steps up to summit anchors. I untied at block and threw my rope over it and retied then went up. Great fun, mini adventure. some evidence of human traffic to sub summit so not certain on f/a. We installed bomber 1/2 inch anchors. Rappel off front side with single 70.


Small tower/spire right of Terma. Approach should bring you right to it or slightly to its left. Obvious feature. move up and left as the route tunnels behind. Single 70 to the deck and reverse approach to road.


Single set of camalots to a # .75 and/or a set of stoppers.
