  • Read about Anchor Replacement and Restrictions in Arches National Park MORE INFO >>>
  • RAIN AND WET ROCK The sandstone around Moab is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. MORE INFO >>>

  • Description 

    climb north face. starts with a couple of poorly protected mantles. move up and left to "good" "splitter" and head for the roof. layback (crux) around the 4 to 6 inch corner to a boulder with cord and two quick links. solo last few feet to summit. super fun. rock and pro are about like you should expect.


    this is the lonely tower south/southwest of windows.


    single set of cams and stoppers. (i brought double) 1 #5 and an extra #3 camalot. be sure to have a couple small cams and small stoppers. slung boulder on top. single rope rap. easy to top rope. beware of loose rock.

    this one gets a short paragraph in bjornstad's desert rock, national parks, page 156. super fun mini adventure. we all had a grand time. one of the better views in the park. my partner called it 5.9+++ old school. on most of the approach it is possible to avoid the crypto. does not see much traffic. nice alt if owl and bw are crowded since it does go free (but harder).

    A good little afternoon adventure. The climb is a little dirty loose rock beware! Tuff off width section at the top but what a view.

    The summit cord is in good shape as of 7/15. Pretty good rock for Arches.
