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

This small formation is a fun, short climbing outing if in the area. P1- start up loose, blocky chimney and head left when possible on low angle ramp. This was a pretty moderate pitch (5.3?) and felt comfortable to solo.-50ft
P2- Jam 5.7 handcrack for 15ft, and head right to obvious ledge. Clip pin and make 1 aid move (step in etriers) to top of formation and rap anchor. -40ft
You can now sit back and take in views of the colorado river, and the surrounding desert landscape-you will likely not be disappointed....

Location

From Rte. 128 (River road) head north on dirt road a few hundred feet upriver of Dewey bridge. The road has a sign indicating a junction with the Kokopelli Mountainbike trail. Drive through Cattlegate and continue about a mile until the tower
comes into view. Road becomes rough near the towers, so park before switchbacks. Route is on west facing side of formation. Warning: Tower is labeled incorrectly in Desert rock III book.

Protection

Single set of cams, 60m rope, 1 etrier (or over-the-shoulder sling would work).
