The First Pitch of Classic JahMan in Moab Collapsed

The first-pitch of the classic multi-pitch collapsed some time in the past week

The first pitch of the classic JahMan in Castle Valley has reportedly collapsed. The classic five-pitch 5.10c route is a favourite for visitors to Moab looking for a remote objective.

Farland Fish reported on Mountain Project: “The whole first pitch and base of the route fell off last week (early Jan 2020. It left a huge debris scar down the cone and made an incredible boom that could be heard for miles. Interesting to see if an alternate first pitch is possible.”

Jah Man climbs the amazing Sister Superior, which is situated near other famous towers, such as Castleton Tower, the Rectory, the Nuns and the Priest. A number of climbers have reported that all that remains of the first pitch is a rock scar. Scroll down to watch Steph Davis solo and BASE jump off the tower.
