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 wide crack on the west side of the Tower. The hardest climbing is right off the ground. Slightly overhanging soft rock split by 5-8 inch crack. An old style 5 probably would have worked well here. The angle eases from here and the crack gradually widens to ~ 12 inches before the traverse out left. Climb a suspicious, totem-like, pile of rock and finish in a comfortable yet unprotected chimney. Belay from the chimney. Double rope rap Fort Knox.

Protection

.75,3,4,5,(3x)6,9,12, a double length sling for the boulder before the traverse.
