After my little trip to UT I also loved the climbing there and now I can totally symphatize with you going back there whenever you can :)
Thanks Haydar. The place is spectacular - photos don't do it justice! So you're planning a return trip ;)
Would go back there in a heartbeat :)
yeah man, I got the same problem :)
Great contrasts! I wouldn't mind exploring that area!
Thank you for stopping by Gangolf!
If you visit, watch out - it's like "meth", try once and you'll be hooked :)
Yeah, I know. I've been exploring our homegrown red stuff a bit again and it keeps drawing me back. The upside of my current job is that it is only about half an hour from the closest cliffs. The downside is, that I live an hour away. I guess I'll have to do some lengthy triangling over the summer...
Castleton is a classic! How 'bout this
one - CLICK.
Have you ever thought about climbing it?
Wait for the waters to rise a bit more.

I don't even know what it is? But it does look like a nice tower. You sure it's not one of 'em Indian sacred thingees that'll get me into a Navajo prison (or worse) Larry?
A boat is required to see the thing;
there are no trails that I know of.
It's actually located in Kane County,
Utah, which is several miles north of
Navajo Nation. It's 14.7 miles NE of
Page, AZ, and 12.2 miles (by boat)
from Wahweap, AZ. The necessary
connections are made with the Glen
Canyon NRA. There's houseboats
always parking next to it, so it's
open to the public at large.
It's made of Navajo Sandstone, so your
karma must be at a sufficient level -
but not as high as your skill level.
As long as Blondie smells it over first,
then you shouldn't have problems with
the invisible spirit world. Looks like
a nice thing to take photos of. -LARRY
