Y Tower!!! Ben K on the summit... sort of.

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


This tower is like a boulder problem with a hard mantle onto the summit. Climb on top of the bench between the two towers and place gear at your feet for the mantle onto the summit block. This was actually kind of heady. We slung a block that was kind of sketchy on the summit so treat our slings with suspect.


This is the tiny bolted tower on the far end of the group to the SW.


some wide-ish pieces and cord for getting off.

It would be fitting that it is so short and almost satisfying...
