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 tower is like a boulder problem with a hard mantle onto the summit. Climb on top of the bench between the two towers and place gear at your feet for the mantle onto the summit block. This was actually kind of heady. We slung a block that was kind of sketchy on the summit so treat our slings with suspect.

Location

This is the tiny bolted tower on the far end of the group to the SW.

Protection

some wide-ish pieces and cord for getting off.

It would be fitting that it is so short and almost satisfying... Nov 2, 2013
