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

Cottontail Tower is the very large tower in between Kingfisher and the Titan. The trails winds right around its base, which gives it the easiest approach of any of the major Fisher Towers. Cottontail is harder to climb than the Titan by its easiest route, and many of the lines wander. As with all the major towers aside from the Titan, Harvey Carter did the first ascent via West Side Story, which has now gone clean. Ed Webster put up Brer Rabbit solo, and Jim Beyer has proposed a grade of A6 for one of his routes here.

Getting There

Walk along the trail until you can touch the tower. I wish all tower approaches were like this. You may have to scramble up a gully depending on your choice of route.
