Yes, you heard that correctly: Bailey Moore—the climber in this week’s Whipper—tries to tie his shoe mid-way up a crumbling tower of mud in the Fishers. Oy…

Bailey was climbing Entry Fee (5.8 R) on Lizard Tower in the Fisher Towers, Utah, when, about halfway up, he slipped.

“I was caught by a sketchy slung horn and nearly decked,” he told Rock and Ice. “I was a bit rattled afterwards but brought myself together for a second go, but had to bail at the same spot due to incoming rain. The rock seemed dry, but the crumbly mud and sandstone was scary to climb on.”

Yup. That about sums up the Fishers!

Happy Friday and climb safe this weekend!
