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 

Being on a ridge, this route could be exposed to some wind, but the advantage is that the rock quality tends to be very good because of that location. The EEE ascends and "enchains" about 5-6 little towers culminating on the main and highest tower, which we dubbed The Trojan. This highest Tower had been ascended before, presumably from the much shorter and easier north side. Despite extensive research, we were unable to later discover what the First ascentionists called this higher Tower. We will certainly agree to the original name if/when we are contacted.

Getting There 

This is from Eric Bjornstad's Desert Rock: Turn between mile marker #20 and #21 at a sign reading "Fisher Valley Ranch". The road will cross Onion Creek 16 times. About 0.5 miles past the bridge which crosses a deep, narrow gorge and as the South Face of the Titan comes into view to the North, EEE is in plain view in the foreground between the Titan and the road. The approach to the beginning of the route up the West Ridge begins out of a small gully aimed right at the Titan requires a mere 15 minutes.

Everyman's Endless Edge 5.9+ 5c 17 VI 17 E1 5a A1+  Utah : Moab Area : ... : The Trojan
West Ridge of the Trojan. After crossing Onion Creek, find the 2-3rd class little canyon that is aimed directly at the South Face of the Titan. The first rock buttress encountered on the right is the start. Look for a right facing dihedral with a bolt visible about 10m up. This was placed to avoid disturbing a huge loose death flake in the crack at the time. This flake/block was trundled afterwards....[more]   Browse More Classics in Utah
