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

Pretty cool looking tower that is close/attached to a larger landform on the east. Several drilled angles are visible high on the pitch. We climbed the face away from Elvis' Hammer (with the drilled angles) at about 5.8 C1+. Some soft rock mid pitch provided the only excitement. Good anchor with your new cord or webbing. Light but varied rack. Our free rack for the Hammer was plenty, we just stood in some slings. Don't know the name of the route, tower or first ascentionists. Post if you do. Makes for a fun day when combined with Elvis' Hammer and the Rhino Horn.

Getting There

This is the small (about 70ft) tower that we passed on the high approach to Elvis' Hammer. It is about 200 yards E. of the hammer and is visible from the road.

This might be the Mexican Caulk Gun you're referring to. In High on Moab it mentions that it's 5.10+R A2. Though it didn't feel that hard and it does go clean. Mar 9, 2015
