Off-Balance Rock

You must be logged in to add a peak to your favorites.

Off-Balance Rock is an unofficial namesake for the landform immediately northeast of the famous Balanced Rock feature in Arches National Park. This salmon-colored Entrada Sandstone tower rises about 160 feet off the desert floor. Off-Balance is near the intersection of the main park road and The Windows Road so the approach is very short. The ascent can be made via two pitches on either the Northeast Chimney route (5.7) or the Camino route (5.10). 

Refer to "Desert Rock I: Rock Climbs in the National Parks" by Eric Bjornstad for detailed information on the climbing routes on Off-Balance Rock.

Alternate name: Off Balanced Rock is the name used in the guide book "Rock Climbing Utah" by Stewart M. Green and some other guides.
