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 original route to the top did not scale the tower at all. Rather, the top was accessed by climbing the adjoining mesa. Since then a route has been added which ascends the tower and should add to the allure of this area.

Getting There

As described in DRIII. Indian Chief is a Wingate tower above mile marker 28. It is named for its obvious profile as you drive upriver on River Road.
