You have seen the summit of Ancient Art if you watch TV and have seen the Citibank commercial with Katie Brown. Cristin, who visited Moab all the way from Florida, had a perfect weather window to climb to the incredible summit of this tower and also enjoy the climbing at Wallstreet. Enjoy these pictures from Cristen’s climb of Ancient Art in the Fisher Towers and of course some “Tebowing” summit poses. Great job Cristin!! You can see that we also climbed Lizard Rock,which is very near the parking lot. This is one of the most wild looking areas in the desert, with drip sand castle towers and Castle Valley just over your shoulder.
