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

The Merrymen is a five summit tower that masts over upper Onion Creek. The climbing reminded me of a longer, harder, funner version of Carson's Tower in the Fishers. Don't expect clean splitter Wingate sandstone climbing on this formation. If you thought Ancient Art was dirty, then don't climb this tower. The rock quality is on par with some of the muddier Fishers.

Getting There

Following the main canyon of Onion creek, you will reach a wet short 25-foot climb (5.0-5.4). Usually, a hand-line is in place. Once past this climb, the Merrymen is obvious as it towers over the canyon.

Scramble north into a side drainage, west of the tower, and work your way to the base.
