Access Issue: RAIN, WET ROCK and RAPTOR CLOSURES: The sandstone around Moab is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. Also please ask and be aware of Raptor Closures in areas such as CAT WALL and RESERVOIR WALL in Indian Creek Details

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.

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. Jun 3, 2003
