Thanks Dirk!

Cool place definitely. The climbing is top notch but so is the rest of the experience.......camping in the middle of the Utah desert - unbeatable!

"you are nuts, you know that, right?"



Thank you very much :)



Yeah, the gas is ridiculous but the good news is that it's A LOT cheaper in UT. We found regular for as low as 1.99/gal......makes me want to get a smaller truck....ALTHOUGH, sleeping comfortably in the bed of our truck will be hard to match.

When I saw the name of the page, I knew it was you that added it. This is a really cool tower and arch. I've seen it from the rim of Island in the Sky many times.

Yea, you will have to move out there sometime.



Some of my friends have climbed Standing Rock. They said the thing actually sways in the wind on windy days! That would be kind of scary.

That is one awsome looking tower (Standing Rock)!! Challenged only by that Totem Pole that is illegal to climb (it's in AZ I think - though I think Standing Rock also goes by name Totem Pole sometimes).



Scott, would your friends be able to give me some beta on getting to the base of Standing Rock (as well as on the route itself)? I know it's not straightforward and read some mixed opinions on climbingmoab.com



Much thanks for checking out the page and photos.

regards,

radek

I don't have any personal beta on the route, and the climb beyond my ability. I could ask for it though, and I'll email it to you.



As far as getting there, its a class 5-drive up. The road is easily class 5, and you can drive Salt Lake to Seattle faster than you can drive Salt Lake to Standing Rock (no joke). The road is rough(!), and it takes forever, but you can drive right to the rock. Here are some directions. I don't see it on climbingmoab.com, so maybe they are refering to another Standing Rock? Anyway, a perhaps better way to the rock, if you don't want to punish your 4wd, is to drive th road near the Maze Overlook, and hike the Golden Stairs Trail to the area west of Standing Rock, then walk the road. The road to Maze Overlook is still 4wd, but not as bad as the road to LAnd Of Standing Rocks/Dollhouse.



Standing Rock looks similar to Hindu Tower which also known as Totem Pole on some maps, which is also refered to as a different tower next to it on other maps. The names/maps are often confusing. I assume the one you are refering to is the one at Canyon De Chelly?



One of these days someone has got to come up with some sort of numbering system, Totem Pole #1, Standing Rock #2, etc!
