The Grim Reaper from the "road"

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 >>>


Like the Cenotaph, this is tower that is detached from the main butte (the one next to the Tombstone and not Lost World Butte). The only route on it so far is "An Icy Breath" which climbs the northwest corner to the shoulder and then the southwest face to the summit.

Getting There 

Drive a mile past Cenotaph taking the right fork. The spire comes into view after about 3/4 of a mile. It faces Lost World Butte.
