Responsible and respectful human waste management at the Tower. Please, pack out your poo. This past weekend we watched a huge party roll up and scatter to the trees. One woman went six feet from the trail and dropped a dooker on the surface and left her used TP on the pile too. This is completely irresponsible and disrespectful to this amazing place.

Did the poo-offenders have AZ plates?

The Tower was much nicer place when the alternate directions weren't posted here on MP. "Access" sounds nice on paper, but then you suddenly have a minefield of excrement from AZ 5.10 gym climbers that can't poop as properly as Dylan.

As opposed the POOR human behavior, though this is just the result not caught in the act.

Right at a Y junction in the trail leading away from one of the camp spots, maybe 50 feet...nice.

We did bag it up and leave it on their car with a polite note asking to pack out poo and paper. Or at least the paper, and bury the rest. I can't believe how lazy and disrespectful people can be. Especially climbers in a clearly special place.
