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 >>>


This is fun lil' tower faces the road. The crack starts to the right of a chimney cleft. Climb up easy but really dirty 5.7 to a thin crack. Go up this for about 50 feet using a 1/2" to 1" crack, near the top make a move right to some big pockets. Bring your mantleing skills and belly flop onto the summit


Approach: Take Onion Creek turn off. Drive across about 10 river crossings. When the Hindu first comes into view as you drive around the corner, the Yo Hammer is on your right. The approach from the road is about 5 minutes.


A light cam rack to 3" (1) #2 angle,(1)medium LA..

The hole for the angle has filled in with sand and has compacted over time making the hole frustratingly useless, so instead of 1 exciting mantel you get to do 2 exciting mantels now. I used one #2 bird beak placement instead of the LA and it got the job done nicely.
