About Onion Creek:

Onion Creek is a small area of Cutler sandstone towers and canyon walls in between the Fisher Towers and Castle Valley. All the routes are approached via Onion Creek road, which is signed from River Road. The Hindu is the most classic tower here, and has seen impressive free climbing efforts. This is also the entry way to the truly scary Mystery Towers, which are approached by a wild slot canyon just past the Hindu.
Nearest town or city: Moab
Directions: From River Road, drive down the Onion Creek Road. After many strem crossings, the towers become obvious on the right side of the road.
