The crux start to Whisky River. A bit soft.

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 

The towers, which are really the high points of fins rising between Bride's Canyon and the valley, are the southwest wall of the valley. They are all between 200 and 300 feet high. The wingate has no caprock, so it's rotten in spots. Lots of powder in the cracks. All of these routes face due north.

Getting There 

Drive up the steep Gemini Bridges Road from US191. When the Road turns west and opens into a Valley, you are looking across at the Whsiky Caps. Park in a dry creekbed near Pinky Tower and walk up the canyon then up the hill to the walls.

The cream of the crop up here... this corner goes on for a very long ways. You need a lot of large cams to protect it. However, the start is so tight you won't get anything in. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in Utah
