Matt rappeling off the summit of luminous being.

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 

When looking at the Crow's Head Spires from the rappel point on the rim, Don Juan Spire is on the left and Luminous Being Spire is on the right.

First climbed in ’83 by Robert Warren, Steve Wood, and Jeff Web, Luminous Being now offers at least 4 routes to the summit. Regardless of what route you choose, expect some spicy climbing somewhere between you and the summit 250 feet above.

Getting There 

See the approach description under the main Bird's View Butte - Crow's Head Spires page.
