Three towers

Utah > Moab Area > Kane Springs Ca… > Hunter Canyon
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

These towers have a little bit of everything on them, from a moderate trad route on sqid pig, an exciting bolt ladder on The Freightened Pickle, to a steep aid line that might go free on The Huntsman.

Getting There

Squid pig is the large tower on the left side of the creek about 1 mile from the parking lot, The Freightened Pickle is the one in the middle and the huntsman is the tower on the far right of the canyon. The approach is super flat and quite scenic.
