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 >>>


Frankenstein is a great rarely climbed tower. Beware of loose/rotten rock. There are opportunities for additional routes on this tower, although I would be surprised if one ever gets put up.
