DescriptionThe climb takes intermittent cracks on the east-northeast side of the formation.
1. Start on the east corner, follow zigzagging cracks. About one third of the way up is an obvious short section of deep crack that takes excellent large cams, then mostly thin nailing in calcite seams up and left to a flake crack, then a short rotten section to the top (90’, A2)
LocationFrom Hanksville, drive west on Highway 24 over the Fremont River. Turn right (north) on River North Road. Drive a half mile, locate the tower up and right.
Descent: rappel the route from three fixed spikes, made from angle iron. The first one is about 14 inches long. The other two, on the west side of the summit, are about 9–10 inches long. Drilled holes in the spikes are threaded with 5mm cord. The cord may need replacing/rethreading.
