Indian Creek 2019 info: or the linkblm.gov/press-release/annou….
RAPTOR CLOSURES: please be aware of seasonal raptor closures at the Cat Wall and Reservoir Wall. They occur annually from March 31st until August 31st. *Due to the federal hiring freeze in agencies such as the BLM of Monticello, no official closure for 2017 has been issued and the laws which have been put in place in previous years are not being enforced. Please, for the sake of fragile desert ecology, DO NOT CLIMB at stated walls. These raptors return to the same nesting sites every year to raise their nestlings.
Though Spring Canyon is smaller than its neighbors to the south (Hell Roaring, Mineral, and Taylor) it still offers 350 foot walls and several towers on which to play. The rock here is mostly weathered Wingate. You will find pitches of incredibly quality, but its no Indian Creek.. You could probably get a Subaru down into Spring Canyon, but a 4x4 is recommended.
Not much is known about the climbing history of this canyon. At least three towers have routes to their top. Andy Roberts and Jason Repko climbed here in 2000 when they climbed Roadside Fling Tower.
We found 3/8 bolts on another tower we are temporarily calling Pointy Tower.
Ben Kiessel, Ian McAlexander and I climbed a new route on what we think was think was a new tower a couple years ago. We named it Plumb Tower.
Other than that ?
It would be nice to know the real name of Pointy Tower
From Moab take 191 north to 313. Drive west on 313 for 8.2 miles and turn right onto a dirt road. (Spring Canyon Bottom Rd.) You will pass a BLM kiosk and parking viewpoint on the left just before you reach this road. Follow this road for approximately 1 mile and go straight/left at the Dunbinky Well Road junction. Continue along Spring Canyon Bottom Rd. for a dozen miles until you begin the steep descent into Spring Canyon.
