Superchoss Albatross.

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

Description 

Climb the crispy-edged crack in the east face of the tower to a ledge, then follow three bolts to the summit.

I french-freed a bit in the crack for a 5.9 C1 ascent, but future parties (if there ever are any) may opt for a 5.10 A0 experience.

Protection 

For the crack, (2) .4, (2) .75-2, (4) 3, (1-2) 4, optional 5 and/or 6.

After the crack, there are three bolts of A0 to the top. We had aiders but you might be able to just pull on draws. A single 60m rope will get you down.
