Challenge your Inner Steward
Were you aware that the land surrounding Castleton Tower is considered a high-risk fire area? If you see firepites constructed in the fee-free campground, do your part as a land steward and deconstruct them.
Castleton Tower, like most red rock landscapes in Utah, is made of sandstone. Sandstone is extremely fragile when wet. Wait at least 24 hours without rain until attempting to climb Castleton Tower for your safety and to avoid damaging this iconic tower.
BEFORE YOU GO...
Do you know what type of gear you need? 1 rope or 2? How many rappels? Utah Open Lands provides information on the classic Kor-Ingalls route and what gear is required to ascend. It's always a good idea to research your objective in an official guidebook before showing up to the crag.
LEAVE IT LOVED!
Leaving it loved means taking responsibility for a place you're visiting. If you see trash at the campsite, even if it isn't yours, try challenging your inner steward and pack it out. We all have a responsibility to help out and maintain the beauty of our open spaces.
