Climbing Fisher Towers in Utah (Video)

January 29, 2015 Updated: August 1, 2015

Just 25 miles North of Utah’s adventure capital, Moab, sits the sandstone citadel known as Fisher Towers. Hidden among its crumbling mudstone spires is a route of unsurpassed quality; ‘Ancient Art.’ The route’s fame is such that climbers travel from all over the world to experience the line and snap a photo atop its corkscrew summit. Its incredible dripped-wax appearance is due to the soft nature of the rock which has been known to erode rapidly in heavy storms.
