Routes in Dunce Rock

Unknown T 5.7 5a 15 V+ 13 MVS 4b C1

Description

This is a relatively easy and fun tower (with a couple harder-looking routes on it...) that is close to the parking lot.
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

From campsite #3, walk toward the tower and right and down into a draw/dry streambed. You'll reach a point where two dry streambeds meet. Go up the left one (there will be a large bush at the mouth). Follow that for a ways and then cut left to the base of the tower.

I got the bolt ladder free at 5.10+? or something today. Hard to rate. Really quality climbing! Don't know if that's the FFA of the tower? Either way, I think it's a fun route to check out especially those looking to get on something free rather then just Lizard Rock and the Cobra. Though I don't think you would want to take whips on those pins but they would probably hold. It's a sport climb now!! :) Mar 18, 2013

Don't waste your time. The rock quality is terrible, even for Fisher Towers. My friend and I both broke off numerous holds. Unsafe. 04/18/2011 May 4, 2011
