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 

A shallow draw on the west side of the main canyon which is home to a handful of routes. The Mike Baker line Million Dollar Baby is the best-known route in Cottonwood Wash, featuring a long, slabby handcrack that is visible from the main canyon. The alluring Million Dollar Tower stands in front of MDB. There is a cluster of three routes on the buttress to the right (west) of the wall with MDB. Two are unknown, and one is plaqued, refer to the beta pics below.
These routes receive afternoon shade.

Getting There 

From the gate/parking area, walk north up the old road into the canyon for a little over 1/2 mile. Cut left (west) following a small wash into the draw with Million Dollar Baby and Million Dollar Tower sitting in the back of the draw. A short, loose hillside leads to any of these routes.
Approach time is approx. 1/2 hour.
