Montezuma's Tower at Garden of the Gods is pretty skinny, at least in one dimension.

I've done both Montezuma's and Cleo......Cleo is MUCH skinnier;....on the summit, you straddle the rock; leg on either side;'s rather's only strength is that it is basically a fin of rock.....the last pitch, the rock is 6-10 feet thick the whole's wild!
