Fisher Towers

Just 25 miles to the North of Moab is the mudstone citadel known as Fisher Towers. A collection of spires and towers with a unique dripped candlewax appearance, the area is home to one of the world's most famous rock climbs and certainly the most famous summit in all of climbing.

'Ancient Art' is simply a must-do route for any climber visiting the state and while the individual pitches themselves may not be 'world class' in the traditional sense, the overall experience is pretty unparalleled, particularly at such an amenable grade.

To get a sense of just how unique this route is, check out this awesome first person footage from the final pitch.
