Description

A little visited area with lots of possibilities for adventure type climbing that is easily accessible from I70. There are several towers that have been climbed in this area, mainly by Frosty Weller and Randall Weekly. See the Bjornstad desert guide Wall Street to the San Rafael Swell.

Getting There

The mile marker numbers have changed since the Bjornstad guide book Wall Street to the San Rafael Swell was published. Drive west from Green River on I70 and at about 28 miles take ranch exit 131. Drive under the interstate to the south and take a right, sign Head of Sinbad. At 4 miles keep right at the Swazey Cabin sign. At 5.2 miles take the right fork. At 6.9 take the fork right. The Dutchman's Arch sign is at 8.7 miles. Here go back north under I70. On exiting the tunnel take the right fork at 9.5 miles. You are now facing the Sinbad area. The Mesa ahead is called Locomotive Mesa and has Fremont Indian petroglyphs towards its center.

To reach Hide Out Tower and Bank Robbers Mesa, from the right fork exiting the tunnel go .5 mile to the right fork. Right again at .7 miles. Then 1.4 miles to a wire gate. Here the tower is in view on the right end of the Bank Robbers Mesa. From the gate drive 1.8 miles, keep right, and look for a faint road on the left(1.9 from the gate). Drive about .7 miles to good camping areas. High clearance vehicle preferred. The foot of the Hide Out Tower and the start to The Great Escape route to the top of the mesa is about 5 minutes walk from the parking area.
