Pensive Putterman, just off Kane Creek road, is another short, easy tower to summit. Due to it's proximity next to the road, climbing it often draws a crowd of on-lookers. If you are doing Happy Turk Hoodoo across the road, be sure to climb this as well.
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: All Along the Putt-Tower
The route starts on the back side of the tower, away from the road. Scramble up to the base. There are 2 bolts without hangers out on the right, which are not part of the route. Instead, look for 3 pitons up the middle of this back side.
To reach the first piton, free climb or aid the crack to the right of the piton crack. Once up 15 feet to a ledge, traverse over, place a piece or two, then either aid up to, or stick clip the first piton. If aiding, the crack left of the piton crack accepts better gear. From the first piton, follow another piton directly above, then lean out right and clip a third piton before summiting.
Rappel the route using an interesting, but seemingly solid anchor.
