Golden Nugget Spire (aka Hang Nail) Rock Climbing
From the North side.
|RAIN AND WET ROCK The sandstone around Moab is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. MORE INFO >>>|
First off this spire is not in any books I have looked at. If you know the real name of this tower please tell me and I will change it.
This spire is next to the canyon wall and passed when walking to Gold Bar Tower. This spire has a crack that runs through it, offering two routes to the summit. Both of these routes share the last 15' to the summit. It is unknown if the longer route on the side away from the canyon wall has been climbed.
To get to Golden Nugget Spire follow the rim up canyon staying left to an obvious spire next to the canyon wall above you. Hike is 15-30 min.

EJD, if you know the FA party I'd love to hear what they originally called it.
