Description

The Titan is the largest of the Fisher Towers, and the largest free standing tower in the United States. The Titan was also the first tower in the Fishers to be cimbed. Layton Kor's ascent of the Finger of Fate was the subject of an article in National Geographic, and the climb is one of the 50 Classic Climbs of North America. Harvey Carter, not to be outdone, added the incredible plumb line Sundevil Chimney, and later harder routes were added by Jim Beyer, Walt Shipley, and Duane Raleigh among others. Stevie Haston made an impressive attempt to free the Finger of Fate, but still had to resort to a few moves of aid - so the Titan is still awaiting a FFA.

Update - Stevie Haston has apparently freed the Sundevil Chimney at 5.13 This is pretty mind blowing - if the Titan can be freed probably any tower can.
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

Getting There

Walk along the trail until at the base of the Titan. Sundevil Chimney is the first route reached. To reach the Finger of Fate, keep traversing around the base until it is possible to scramble up on ledges.

To the person who left two chunks of wet carpet at the base of the titan out in the pines. Pick up your crap. If you drop gear from something, take the time to try and recover it. I hiked your shitty carpet/belay seat out and threw it out. May 14, 2014

Time to update the intro!

Stevie did the FFA of Sundevil, 5.13 X, in 2002. Ben Bransby and Pete Robins freed Finger of Fate, March 2005. Finger of Fate free, 5.12, has also been repeated by Jason Haas (April 2011) and Will Stanhope (April 2013). Apr 21, 2013

The Titan is featured in the latest Alpinist Magazine (#8). Blurbs by first ascent parties, lots of cool route photos. Almost makes me want to climb the thing again. Sep 21, 2004
