Easy to find, easy access, easy route finding, easy routes, easy off. Shade.

Getting There 

Head south on Geology Tour Rd. for 2.8 miles, and then pull off on the right. Look westward and identify the northern-most rocks that sit south of a large hill. These are the Towers of Uncertainty. Walk west towards these on a climber's trail and the first formation you come to should be Crow's Nest (.3 miles). At least four routes are found on the north side, the most distinctive of which is Trench Connection, a cool looking crack on the left-hand side.
