Description 

Fox Tower is a 200 foot buttress that sits adjacent to the south side of the massive Indecent Exposure Buttress. There are a few routes here, with the most striking line being the swiss cheese huecos that form the Fox Trot (9+) route.


Getting There 

After hiking down the main road past the Indecent Exposure Buttress, there's a bathroom. Just past that, find a climbers trail leading pretty much right to the base of the formation.

Upon walking up to Fox Tower, about 96% of climbers will be saying "what route goes up those really cool hueco-monkey-bars?" That would be this route. Start just below and left of the huecos at a cleft, climb up and right out of the cleft to a pretty high first bolt (30'), then just follow the bolts up to the anchor. Crux is like the last bolt and crack (bring a large stopper) where the big buckets you've been swinging from disappear and you have to edge your way up the finish. Really nice route...[more]   Browse More Classics in TX
