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 tower actually has four detached summits. We climbed up the middle of the tall tower on the right. On the southeast side. (facing away from the river)
Pitch 1. Climb up the perfect splitter crack, from .5 camalot to #1. C1 for me, or 5.11 or harder. 110' ending under a roof.
Pitch 2. Aid out the overhang to the left and follow the crack through the steep headwall on less than perfect gear. C2, again maybe possible to free. The summit is almost perfectly flat and square.

Location

This was the first route done on the formation. It climbs a splitter up the middle of the 3rd summit from the west. On the South side (facing away from the river). There is a short scramble at the bottom to reach the start of the crack.

Protection

3 sets of cams including (2) #00, #0, #1 metolious.
The are fixed anchors on top. 1 Double rope (60M)rappel.
