Description

The Oracle is a small spire perched on top of a soaring fin behind the Titan. Though the fin is connected to the rimrock, the Oracle is climbed from the bottom and accessed via the same trail as the Finger of Fate. It is considered to be one of the five major Fisher Towers along with the Kingfisher, Echo, Cottontail, and the Titan.

Harvey Carter and Steve Kentz made the first ascent back in 1970 over a period of 9-days. Their effort produced Fantasia, which is probably the most traveled route to this seldom visited summit. The only other existing route was put was put up by Steve “Crusher” Bartlett and Dave Levine and is rumored to involve a dozen beaks in a row. Yikes!

Regardless of what route you choose, the Oracle is a serious undertaking. Don't let that stop you though. The views are worth it. I personally think that this tower provides the best vista to be had anywhere in the Fishers.
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

Follow the trail to the Titan's Finger of Fate.
