Description 

Lovely Tower is a freestanding boulder as tall as Wave Wall, right next door. Of the six routes it holds, five are are bolted and four are must-dos, particularly the Lovely Arete (5.11a). If you climb in the 11-to-12 range, this is the block for you.

Getting There 

Lovely Tower sits almost exactly in the middle of the East Falls and the North Falls. From the Dog Walk Gully, follow the cliff north and east past Royal Arches Wall. From the North Falls, go south and west past Spleef Peak. You won't miss it.

Me Gusta 5.8 5b 16 VI- 15 HVS 4c  IL : Jackson Falls : Lovely Tower
This route has probably been climbed before us, but we found it on a wet day when I had intended to project Hidden Treasure and Velvet Green. After falling several times on Hidden due to the wet condition, I dropped a TR on the other side of the rock up a nice dry gully in the sun. It ended up being the most fun little 5.8 I have done at Jackson, and I highly recommend it. I set up the TR anchor with natural protection after leading up Hidden Treasure. Good if you have less experienced climbers ...[more]   Browse More Classics in IL
