The Grim Reaper Rock Climbing
The Grim Reaper from the "road"
|RAIN AND WET ROCK The sandstone around Moab is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. 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.
This is Entrada... enter at your own risk. The summit spire is actually bleached entrada... not quite as solid as your usual entrada... if you can imagine that.
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.
