CB Love Muscle. Part of our 10 tower Kane Creek D...

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 >>>


Start out with easy free climbing, to a upside down, half hammered in drilled pin. Clip the good bolt directly above as soon as possible. Mantle over the top to a 3 pin anchor.


Look for the bolts up high on the tower, and start below them.


A few cams for the start, 2 draws, 100' rope.

I used 2 .5's down low. The rock is typical flakiness. There is a piton and bolt and the anchor is at the lip. Fun little tower to do.

great fun! awesome views, worth it for that alone. a bit of a drive. i got one purple then one small blue camalot at the start. one 5.6 mantle move and some dirt and your at the pin. not sure how much longer that pin is going to hold. good thing the bolt is close and fairly easy to clip. easy to french free. 3 pins on top.

Once again, we called this "EB's Love Muscle." Eric changed the name in one of his books. There was never a route name. But hey, let's create one. Climbers make so much stuff up it's disturbing. Especially the magazine editors. Most have hardly climbed anything and yet they get to be the gateway to what's said and reported. Climbing magazines are the equivalent of Fox News. This is the tip of my experience with them.

Hey Cam,
Do you want me to take the route name off? I could just call it 'Original Route' or something.
