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 a short bolt ladder to the lip. from there i lassoed a small broken stump about the size of a red bull can and 1/2 aided, 1/2 freed over the lip. we added a pin and left a runner on it after the fact just behind the stump. quick, fun, easy little bag and tag.
we hear the FA of the tower was about a year and a half ago by some highliner friends of andy lewis. we understand they tossed a rope over and jugged up. thats all we know. our route, the floridian, was so named because Orr and Noy are from florida.

Location

3 miles up 313 from 191. obvious on the right just before the switchbacks. from some talus, just past the tower, hike benches past, then back and up to the base. start on the notch side (opposite the road). looks like a smaller version of mexican hat. one double 70 rap get you back to the start bench.

Protection

3 quickdraws. 1 long runner. a few cams very optional.

Thanks for the bolt ladder! I went back with some buddies to rig up the highline again (I don't think it was rigged since we first did it 6 years ago). Saved us having to toss the rope over. Dec 8, 2017
"Fake Mexican Hat"?

WTF? The idiotors, whoops, editors, of Mtn Project are flipping high. Why does that stand?

Paul's right: FA of the tower; Cameron Burns with Paul Fehlau as rope anchor. January 18, 1990. Paul and I were out staying at Warren Harding's place in Moab (yep, the same guy who did the first ascent of the Nose). It was the shittiest weather ever. Snowing every day. Warren would keep us up until 2 or 3 am every night telling stories (some of the recordings of these will be in Oakley Anderson-Moore's new film (see climbing.about.com/b/2010/1…)). I got Paul up one morning and said we just gotta do some climbing while we're here. We'd seen the Frisbee (originally called the Frisbee Dick) and we scampered up. I tossed a rope over the thing and had Paul tie in on the other side. It was snowing like crazy. I jugged up and voila. Lovely little tower. Mar 11, 2014

It was such a great climb to do at the end of the day. Short, Exposed, FUN!!! The cord at the anchors is new and in good shape. Just did it this last weekend. Great climb to do outside of the National Parks that are currently CLOSED!!! (nuts) Oct 8, 2013

i think your right. thank you. will change the name to that now. having accurate info is important to us. this one is 3 miles in and the book says 6.5, but i think thats just an error. we knew the thing had been done because there were fresh anchors on top. we considered tossing a rope (were not at all above that) but after talking with some folks we decided the thing needed a route up. hope you enjoy it.

I always assumed that this was 'Putterman's Frisbee" page 143 in DR2. Sep 10, 2013
