Large sandstone pillar out in the middle of nowhere on a flat plain that I just found out was right on the line between the Grand Staircase and Glen Canyon National Recreation Area. Therefore, another place to scope this area out is to go to John Glimes previous submission by clicking on this link - John Glimes Chimney Rock Beta

Getting There 

Just outside the town of Escalante take the "Hole In the Rock" road south. About 3/4 of the way down (38 miles off HW 12) toward Lake Powell on the left is a sandy jeep trail out to the pillar (see map attached).

Climbing Season

This remote and lonely pillar has an "old" 1/4" (these appear now to have been up graded) bolt ladder on its north side. The placements are ok but the stone is soft... be careful! See cover page for the original area link....[more]   Browse More Classics in Utah
