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

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 >>>

Description 

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.

Protection 

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.
