This is a small, blobbish tower that lies just southwest of John's Tower (Leo). However, it does offer some nice views of the surrounding area. The climbing is mostly crack with Baobob Tree being the signature route on the rock. There are six more routes in the Kelman guide (4 under 5.7, 1-10b & 1-11a).
From 705, go north to 707, then east on 707a, then quickly southeast on 707af. Take the right fork and Park. You are basically in front of the northwest face of John's Tower. Start hiking towards John's Tower. You will run into a barbed wire fence. Head left to go around the fence. Go southwest from here to the notch between John's and Little John's. At the notch Little John's will be to the right. Total hiking time for us was six minutes.

The first flake can be reached from directly below, or more easily by following a dike in from the right. After the second flake, a weird traverse left gains the beautiful handcrack. There are excellent views of the Five Corners formation from the su...[more] Browse More Classics in WY
