Description

The Shabazz Palace is a 240 ft tower tucked back in a short side canyon of Little Valley. There are no evident lines to the top aside from a striking system of cracks that split the overhanging southeast face of the formation.
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

Take the Gemini Bridges road up from 191 into Little Valley. Drive a short distance into the Valley and look for a short, broad side canyon on the right before reaching Pinky Tower. Park and hike along a closed mining road into the canyon, when the mining road starts to head uphill, drop into the wash and continue up canyon for a short distance. The tower will be obvious on the left. Approach time is roughly 20 minutes.
