There might not be a more iconic tower than Castleton. Both routes are a physical test of a wide array of techniques and the reward is one that must be experienced by any climber that visits the Moab area.

South of town in the vast sage flats of the high desert sits a massive dome of sandstone with one of the most attainable summits around. The Regular Route, a.k.a. the Cowboy Route, so named after the legend that the first ascent was bagged by local cowboys, is a three pitch route that can be done by the whole family — cowboy boots not recommended! The summit affords amazing views of the La Sal mountains, Canyon Rims Recreation Area, and beyond towards Canyonlands National Park. The icing on the cake, however, is the descent: a free-hanging 110 ft rappel through an arch into a massive amphitheater. An optional rope swing through the amphitheater is an exhilarating way to finish the tour!
