This tower is on the south side of the road, maybe half a mile up from the Maverick Buttress routes. Bjornstads DRII says the tower is the westernmost, though its not... the main buttress of the head of the canyon is actually west of the gap separating Mavericks Buttress from said buttress. The tower is easily recognized when coming down the canyon (as in the photo).
Drive up Longs Canyon about half a mile past the routes on Mavericks Buttress.
