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 Nuns (there are two of them), are short, semi-detached towers located at the north end of the Rectory (between the Priest and the Rectory). There are several good routes on them; most being found on the Nun closest to the Priest.

Getting There

Get there by hiking along the west side of the Rectory, (for most routes) all the way around the Priest, and then back a short ways. Should take about 15 minutes from the Castleton/Rectory trail junction.
