Bill and the summit of South Crow's Head Spire

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 >>>


Great little tower route that presents a great day out when coupled with the approach raps. Fix lines on the rap for the subsequent return to the rim.


South side of south Crow's Head


Though we might have placed a pin or two back in the day I am sure it'll go clean with a standard desert rack.
