Access Issue: 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

Description

This is the tower that stands way out by itself to your left as you're driving on the dirt road that leads to the Fisher Towers. The established routes are on the east side of the formation.

Getting There

I don't have good, exact beta on how to get to the tower. I parked in the Fisher Towers parking lot and walked back down the road for 10 or 15 minutes. Then I cut right (cross-country) to the tower, following washes and dry streambeds when possible. It took a while because there is a ton of cryptobiotic soil on the approach that had to be skirted.

If anyone has better approach beta, please post up and I will replace this.
