Home and Marge is a unique tower, or rather 2 towers than have leaned on each other over time. Similar, I assume in the first ascenders mind, to how Home and Marge lean on each other in a symbiotic relationship.
Not very interesting climbing leads to an amazing summit on a unique feature. I recommend this one!
From downtown Moab, head to south to Kane Creek Blvd. Turn right on Kane Creek Blvd. (This is currently where the McDonald's and Burger King are.)
Route: Chili Cook Off
The route is not visible from the road.
From the parking spot, find an easy way up the first cliff band on the west, and follow the cliff band as it parallels the road. One up the cliff band, you will see Homer and Marge to the north west shortly. With good route finding, it is an easy hike to its base. The route is on the north west side.
Start the route by climbing a 10 foot narrow crack to a ledge. This short crack is a challenge. A #5 C4 camalot fits nicely to aid this section if desired. Once on the ledge, go left, and follow the bolts up to a small ledge below the summit. At this point, switch from aid climbing to easy free climbing (5.5) to the anchors below the summit. A short boulder problem easily attains the summit. Rappel the route.
