This is the smaller formation immediately opposite of Kissing Couple and there is a route that is across from Long Dong Wall. This tower is ascended by those who get scooped on the Kissing Couple because they found a line on Long Dong Wall.
To access these, you drive past Monument Canyon Trail, to the very back of the valley. Look for a tunnel just below the road. This is where the approach trail starts. You start by walking down a trail built in 1910 by John Otto. This trail drops steeply into the canyon for about 800 feet, and then it walks around the edge of the canyon until the Kissing Couple formation can be seen. The start of this is just across from Long Dong Wall.
