RAIN AND WET ROCK The sandstone around Moab is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. MORE INFO >>>

Description 

another sic fun desert dirt pile. crazy tunnel thru a window. a couple more routes possible, including a cherry.

Getting There 

from above the waterfall in the main wash there are two options. approach as for Sandy's Toe and then head up canyon as soon as you gain the rim. or hike up the stream bed until it's possible to escape out left (pulling a couple 3rd class moves) and head up and right to the tower.
To escape the canyon, head back towards sandy's toe staying on the rim. head straight to the point at the mouth of the canyon. cut down some slots and then around the point to the right and into the wash with the rap station.
