Description

This tower is composed of Wingate Sandstone and has a very interesting layer of limestone that acts as a belt for the tower 100 feet up.

The first and last pitch have some sandy spots but overall the tower has quite clean rock and good opportunities for protection.

The primary route on the tower is north facing for the first two pitches and then the route raps around the tower to the west and south.
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 Moab drive north to the turnoff for Potash road. Take a left. Drive out to Long Canyon. There is a sign for Jughandle Arch just before the turn. Drive approximately two miles up the canyon until a distinct break in the Wingate walls appears on the left. Park. From the car walk up a ridge that generally heads to the right of the break. Follow the ridge until it reaches the level of the saddle then traverse left and up the slopes to gain the base of the tower. The tower is located on the left side of the break and the main routes face the saddle.
