Located about 6 miles outside of the town of Green River in southeastern Utah is a small hill topped by a radio tower. The south side of this hill boasts a little-known boulder field, and a 20-25 ft sandstone tower provides some fun Top Rope lines. The tower is about a 2 minute walk from the radio tower.

Getting There 

From Moab, take 131 North to I-70 West. Follow signs for Green River.

Anything Goes 5.8+ 5b 16 VI- 15 HVS 4c  Utah : Green River : Crow's Nest Tower
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

Great climbing on Wingate downriver... Trin-Alcove, the Gooseneck, and many other places have superb climbing. Pack a boat or two and have a backcountry/river-trip/climbing experience!

there can be some bouldering here and there but most of the rock is non-conducive. Better to just enjoy the float and bloat. The wind will keep you pulling on your oars enough you won't miss a thing.
