rap back to tracks

RAIN AND WET ROCK The sandstone around Moab is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. MORE INFO >>>


pitch 1, crux is off the deck, pulling up out of the pod. continue nice fingers to a super fun lay around a block to a good stance. some tiny pro protects a couple of face/crack moves, then up left to the big ledge. gear belay. 50 feet. pitch 2, AO up the bolt ladder to the chains. one more bolt protects the moves to the top and summit register. 40 feet. down climb back to the chains. super fun climbing. great little summit.


starts in an overhanging pod on the north east corner of the tower. single 70 from chains to the deck. hike to rap station in first wash down stream (right,looking at river) from Gold Bar Canyon and rap back to the train tracks.


standard desert rack to a #3 camalot; stoppers and aiders.
