Description

This tower looks like a smaller version of Castleton. There are 3 obvious lines on the tower, (Fort Knox, South Face and West Face). Only Fort Knox is listed in a guide book. The South face has been climbed and the West face has an obvious line but it is unknown if it has been climbed. (The true name of the South Face route is unknown.)
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

To get to Gold Bar Tower follow the rim up canyon staying left and passing the Golden Nugget to the only obvious tower standing alone. Hike is 15-30 min.
