Crow's Nest Tower Rock Climbing
BETA PHOTO: View of Crow's Nest Tower from the radio tower. L...
Crow's Nest Tower is a secluded sandstone tower about 6 miles outside the town of Green River in southern Utah. It's not the world-class crack climbing of Indian Creek, but it's something, especially if you're a local or climbing enthusiast passing through town. The tower provides a great view of Crystal Geyser and the Green River itself. The West face provides some fun top rope lines.
From the town of Green River, travel East on Main Street, continuing out of town and over the I-70 overpass. Take the only right uphill, followed by the first left onto a gravel road. The gravel road winds for several miles, passing a natural gas rig on the left. Shortly thereafter is a fork in the road- stay right. You'll pass an old missile bunker on the left. At this point you can see a radio tower elevated on a hill of about 80 feet. Continue about half a mile towards the tower. The ascent is recommended only via 4WD, mountain bike, or hike. From the top of the hill, look west towards Green River. You'll see Crow's Nest Tower. From here, it's about a 2 minute hike.

Several lines exist up Crow's Nest Tower. The left side of the West Face provides a zig-zagging finger-width crack up to some nice ledges and jugs. The crux lies about half-way up this short but fun route, where you must simply walk your hands through the thinnest (but still relatively solid) part of the route. Be prepared to switch from hands-crack climbing to ledge and jug climbing about 12-13 feet up....[more] Browse More Classics in Utah
