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

pins and bolts up the front face. could go free for sure. we aided with some free moves mixed in. fair amount of space in between bolts, so stick clip will be very helpful if your aiding. stellar little needle. the rock quality is excellent. tom gilje gave us the beta on this one. thanks tom. have no info on FA.

Location

the needle is up on the left wall at the mouth of the canyon. enter into canyon and cut up left as soon as possible on a faint trail. (NOT up the first major wash on your left). gain the ridge line on your right and hike up to the wall. once there head left for a few minutes to the base of the tower. the tower is barely visible from cable arch parking area or from the first pull out past gatherer canyon. it's right of the huge light colored scar.

Protection

6 carabiners or draws. two older bolt anchor on top.
