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 crispy-edged crack in the east face of the tower to a ledge, then follow three bolts to the summit.

I french-freed a bit in the crack for a 5.9 C1 ascent, but future parties (if there ever are any) may opt for a 5.10 A0 experience.

Protection

For the crack, (2) .4, (2) .75-2, (4) 3, (1-2) 4, optional 5 and/or 6.

After the crack, there are three bolts of A0 to the top. We had aiders but you might be able to just pull on draws. A single 60m rope will get you down.

fun little tower, worth doing if you have some time after doing other towers in the area. the crack goes free pretty easily. i think the bolt ladder could also, but the rock was pretty soft and i didn't want to bust it up. thanks for putting it up. May 2, 2017
