Six Shooter Peaks

North and South Sixshooter Peaks (1)

The Six Shooters are Wingate sandstone towers on sandstone alluvium slopes, also known as desert towers. These peaks are located just east of Canyonlands National Park in the famous Indian Creek crack climbing area. At elevations of 6,154 ft. and 6,374 ft., they offer some of the easiest climbing in Indian Creek.

Their iconic name comes from the famous pistol of the Wild West, the Six Shooter.  If looking at the top of the towers at a certain angle, the similarity to the gun becomes evident.
