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 >>>


Climb up and right around the corner to a sloping ledge. Follow bolts past LOOSE rock and over a bulge to the shoulder. Then one more pin to the summit.

Note:The rock is very loose, we climbed this at 5.8, C1.


Start on the Southwest corner of the tower, at a pin.


Quick draws are all we used. Tie-offs for some of the pins. One rope for the rap.

The rock was a bit sandy, but I wouldn't call it loose. It's no worse than what's on Homer and Marge. This was a much easier tick than I expected it to be, as I was told that it was pretty scary. Easily went at 5.8 C1 (mostly I just pulled on the bolts but there were two bolts where I used aiders). Fun!
