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 feature is visible from the highway, back high and right up on the rim of the canyon. awesome little tower with three routes of varying difficulty. one on the north side and two are on the south. base camp is on the south side and is sunny, warm, and spacious like the beach. summit has a stellar view. no crowds here. please close the gate behind you.

Getting There 

drive east off the highway as far as is possible. continue on foot up the road until about even with the talus toe that is down and right of the tower. cut across to it and head up zig-zagging up brushy ledges. once on top, head left (east) to the tower. 20 to 30 minutes.

really cool "easy" route with only a few moves at the grade. great route for the average joe breaking into desert towers. be sure not to miss the awesome cam placement in that pocket below the summit. so cool. great location. great views. a little runout, but not bad. very well protected....[more]   Browse More Classics in Utah
