Leaning Tower provides an easy climb to an impressive summit including a great view of the distant Cathedral Spires. In addition, you might find relative solitude here considering the short approach and proximity to the road, maybe.

Getting There 

Leaning Tower is the obvious "leaning tower" feature that can be seen from the road when looking into the Switchbacks area. To access the southeast side walk around the Tower and squeeze through a tight corridor. From there scramble up another tight gully to a cozy little zone that sits at the base of the route.
