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

Climb the super splitter via aid to the very chossy summit. This climb isn't very good, but if you are looking for remote summits and high adventure you may enjoy your self.

Location

This is a tower located in the back of gather canyon on the left if you are looking up canyon.
Rappel from summit bolts to the ground.

Protection

Many small cams and a couple of standard angles.

Hey Dave,
I hiked up to the base of this around 11 years ago. I remember the super thin splitter running up the wall. I could tell the rock was questionable but I could see how you were tempted to climb it.
The day I saw it I was on a hike with Liz to propose to her. Feb 12, 2009
