Looking Glass Rock – your first desert tower

If you have been looking for a desert tower to climb and Castleton is just out of your range (for now), look no further.  Windgate Adventures rock climbing guide service based in Moab, Utah has a tower for you.

Looking Glass Rock is a stellar 3-pitch, 5.7 low angle rock climb, perfect for the first time tower climber or first time rock climber.  Learn about multi-pitch techniques, enjoy the views of the La Sals and surrounding Canyonlands desert on your way to the summit, and afterwards get ready for THE BEST rappel in the desert.  After climbing to the summit, the only way down is a 125′  free hanging rappel into the Looking Glass alcove.  Enjoy these pictures of this recent group of friends having a great time on the route and the summit.  No experience necessary, our experienced guides will talk you through each step of the way and make this adventure one of the most memorable in your life.  We will supply you with all of the gear needed on your trip and take incredible photos like these along the way.  To book a trip, call us at 435.26o.9802. Climb on!
