Gemini Bridges Trail. Eight miles north of Moab and up the popular four-wheel drive/mountain bike Gemini Bridges Trail, Matt Laggis, Keith Reynolds, and Bill Russell climbed the virgin Pinky Tower at 5.10-. Left of the tower, a short route, Ewe What (5.10-), was established by Reynolds and Peter Verchick. In the same area Kevin Chase and Lisa Hathaway put up Route with a View at 5.9, and Chase and Hathaway climbed Cyclops (5.10-). Keith Reynolds, Courtney Scales, Alan Stephenson, Mark Hester, and John Weinberg climbed the well-known tour guide attraction, the Gooney Bird, via the Tea Party route (three pitches, III 5.10+). This tower is named for its remarkable resemblance to the black-footed Albatross of the south sea islands.
