Access Issue: 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 [Suggest Change]

This climbs the middle tower of the group. From the notch between the Cowboy and Indian (see Cowboy description), walk out a ledge on the north side (optional belay, better for communication) to it's end. Climb up and right for 15' 5.9-ish, mantle awkwardly onto a small ledge, kneel up and clip a bolt. Aid to a 2nd bolt (may go free - 5.10?), then free climb small edges up and left to a horizontal crack. Place pro carefully (soft, small-medium cams), then traverse left around corner and make final soft moves to the top. Rap to the west, to the ground, or to the notch between Indian and the Whiskey Bottle if you plan to do that.
