Description

This is a tower east of Kane Springs Blvd about .5 miles south of Moonflower Canyon. The north face is roughly 130 feet while the south face drops to over 300 feet down. It is visible from Potash road past the popular climbing areas.
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

The Fickle Finger is accessed via Kane Springs Blvd. Park on the road near a private driveway exactly 0.5 miles past (south) Moonflower Canyon and campground. Hike up the driveway and immediately cut to the powerlines. Follow the powerlines to the second major canyon on your left (east). Hike up this drainage on the righthand side. You will eventually come to some mandatory 4th class up a ridge/ buttress. Once the climbing eases there are two hangerless bolts which are utilized for the rappel decent. Scramble past he bolts and the tower will come into view on the right. Moonwalker climbs the blank North face.

The hangerless bolts at the top of the 4th class section on the approach (referred to in the description) are now two nice bolts with hangers, chain, and rappel rings thanks to Sam's upgrade in 2008. Apr 11, 2017
