Towers in Canyonlands National Park. On a Wingate formation at the head of Taylor Canyon, 250 feet from Moses, Ron Olevsky made the first ascent of Traracian Mare solo (III, 5.6, A3). He also made the first ascent (5.7) of the largest dome north of Elephant Hill in the Canyonlands Needles area. The dome was dubbed Conehead. Unreported from the fall of 1982 was Olevsky’s first hammerless solo ascent of the Beckey-Bjørnstad original route on the north face of Moses.
