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 

This is a very unique formation. Definitely worth checking out due to Homer and Marge's symbiotic relationship. (They are two towers that are leaning against each other.)

Getting There 

About 2 miles past Kane Creek on your way to Hurrah Pass you will see some towers on the west side of the road. Pull off of the road in any spot where you can more easily climb onto the continuous ledge system that flanks the road. Once you get onto that plateau, you can walk a short distance to Homer and Marge. They are easy to recognize due to the large hole between them. (They are two towers that are leaning against each other, with a gap in between.)

Climbing Season

For the Kane Springs Canyon area.

Chili Cook Off 5.5 4b 13 IV+ 11 MS 4a C1  Utah : Moab Area : ... : Homer and Marge
This is a good introduction to manky, dirty desert towers. It is another very easy tower.The route starts on the north side shoulder. Climb a ten foot, 6 inch wide crack up to a ledge, walk over to a (quarter inch bolt) bolt ladder. A few of the bolts are missing hangers so some rivet hangers or tie offs make this easier, but some wire nuts would probably work too. Climb about 5 bolts through some dirty rock onto a 5.5 ridge that takes you to the top....[more]   Browse More Classics in Utah
