Description

Plumb Tower is a 350 foot, semi-detached spire on the south side of Spring Canyon. If you’re driving toward the river on Spring Canyon Bottom Road it is the first tower on your left once you reach the canyon floor. Despite its impressive appearance, it seems to have avoided an ascent until we had a go at it in 2007.

Most of the tower is wingate and offers quality climbing though there are definitely sections of loose rock to be found on its flanks. It also hosts an interesting “cave” on the summit that should not be missed.

Keep an eye out for bighorn sheep who frequent this area.
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
