Climber on the summit with Kingfisher in the backg...

RAIN AND WET ROCK The sandstone around Moab is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. MORE INFO >>>


If you actually like freeclimbing in the Fishers, this is a really great one pitch tower. Start up a fisty, awkward thrutch up to a scary, right-angling dirt ramp. Work up to the overhanging OW to a ledge/rest. The offwidth is steep but offers good friction on the Carhartts and some good cobbles on the inside to help out with the thrutchery. After the rest, a few more squeezy moves get you to the anchors. A short, easy scramble gets you to the summit.


Medium and large stoppers, set of TCUs/Aliens, hand and fist sized cams, #5 Friend or similar.

This thing is really good. It's no 5.10 though, and can be done with little or no O/W technique. Solid rock for the business up top, the bottom is a fisher though.
