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


nice little tower with great views and fun climbing. approach may sound complicated but is not. quick and easy. there's potential for a couple more routes. Double Bow Chimney is a few minutes walk down river.

Getting There 

from the waterfall in the main Gold Bar wash, hike up wash to the huge boulders on your left. diagonal left with the boulder to a cheat stack and tunnel thru the hole to the ledge. hike up wash 20 yards to a point under a large roof with a small tree under it. cut back left and up under the roof on an improbable 3rd class ramp. gain the rim and head straight up to the tower.
