Rapping off the Hammer Yeeehaa

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 MORE INFO >>>

Description 

This climb is located across from the Rhino horn on the South side of Elvis's Hammer. Two routes ascend this same crack system from opposite ends of the spire. Be careful scrambling around to the start of the route, rather slabby on sandstone and significant drops off each side. Expect no one else this place is out there and a rad adventure.

Location 

No trails, so walk up the many washes being careful to avoid the very plentiful crypto soil. I parked just after the bulldozed slick rock before Yellow/black crossing signs. I walked towards the "saddle" SW in the ridge to the right which spit me out within close walking distance of the tower.

Protection 

Bolted anchor on top of South side.
Bring small finger gear to hands with a single #4 Size (in) .5" to 4"
Rapped off Anchors for Hormones in Waiting as they looked to be better condition.
