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

It's a desert tower! Like all the others, it's a long drive to get to, a tedious hike, the rock is mediocre. But the summit is spectacular; all the more so because it's the highest thing for miles around.

Getting There

Drive the loop road for 11 miles, all the way past the Puttermans' formations until the closest approach. There is a pull-in, marked by gray-blue limestone rocks. Hike from here is 40 minutes (with a large pack). Work up and left, skirt around to the west side of the dirt ridge, traverse the side of the ridge northward and eventually locate an easy scramble past the major drop-off that circles the formation. One more drop-off is negotiated by a 10-foot chimney/ramp on the southeast corner. You will emerge under the south arete. From here a ledge traverses the west face to access the original route.

It's easy to approach Angel's Fear, which is near the NW corner, by approaching toward the right side of the tower from the road and turning the north (right) corner. This approach has no scrambling other than knee-high steps. Mar 20, 2016
