Tower that is obvious from many points in the basin. Several interesting routes lead to its cool summit. This area is not affected by annual peregrine closure.
Formation is south of TR 261. Hike TR 261 for about 20 - 30 min.. After crossing a slab on the trail look for a left turn off 261, hike over to a creek bed and look for another creek on the far side. Follow this creek to another creek on the left, take this creek to a point of impass and look right for rock piles that lead to a long rock ledge and slabs that led up to the main formation. Allow 45 min.

I climbed here with my partner yesterday. Quite an adventure! The approach isn't too bad, but finding and following the "trail" is pretty tough. This place doesn't really get climbed anymore. Back in the day, definitely, but the wilderness is taking it back. Routes aren't as clean anymore, but the climbing is fun! There's a few rusty old bolts in places, but many of them have been replaced and are in good shape. There's a nice shiny rappel anchor at the top. A 70-meter rope just barely reaches the ground, but the massive ledge allows two rappels (no anchor on ledge, rap off a pinch). Expect stiff ratings, awesome views, and ultra fun climbing! Also expect crystal nubs to break off when you stand on them...
