Description

Eagle Plume Tower is a very prominent tower, with good climbing, that is very easy to find. The Valley of the Gods Rd. loops all the way around the large square formation which is Eagle Plume Tower.
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

Buy Eric's Desert Rock IV. The directions are excellent. The approach to the base of the tower is about a 20 minute walk.

It sounds like the standard rap anchor is now down Lola (on the north end). I added some chain to the top anchor but didn't have enough so there are some biners too. If someone else is feeling charitable, it needs about a 2 foot piece on one bolt, then the chain that's currently up there could be moved down to where it would work well on the lower anchor. We descended in 1 55m double rope rappel to the huge ledge, and then one 25m single rope rappel to the ground. The rap anchors are decent for now but could use a beef up, especially with the exponential growth in traffic in recent years.

Also there is the original, in disrepair, summit register towards the south part of the tower, but also a newer but small nice one on top of the Lola anchor (needs more paper though). Nov 2, 2015
