Fisher Towers Trail Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Few of natures geologic creations are more bizarre to look at than Utah’s Fisher Towers. About a dozen of the strange monoliths stand near the Colorado River east of Moab, grouped together like petrified skyscrapers from some prehistoric city. The brick-red sandstone skyscrapers rise abruptly from the desert floor, while a network of gullies and canyons form the city’s avenues and boulevards below.
The residents of this weird metropolis are an endless collection of goblins and gargoyles frozen in the canyon walls beneath the towers. The Fisher Towers have long been objects of fascination among rock climbers, and on holidays and weekends you are likely to see a few of the human spiders here. The Titan, largest of the Fisher Towers, remained unclimbed until the 1960s when a team of three Colorado climbers, sponsored by the National Geographic Society, made an assent to the top."
