This is a slender tower just north of Cove.The route was first done in four pitches, but could likely be done in three.Remember to leave a rope fixed on the top pitch as you have to haul yourself into the anchors (the pitch overhangs)....[more]   Browse More Classics in AZ

Cove is in Arizona off the N33, just past the New Mexico/ Arizona state line. Cove, AZ is about 15 miles west of Red Valley, AZ. Turn at the Cove/ Oaksprings turn off and head to Cove. A dirt road head up and over toward Buffalo Springs Pass/ Roof Butte and connects back to the N33. A lot of potential out that way with a ton of Mt./ Road biking potential.
