The lower, eastern flanks of Juniper Peak present an array of gullies, ridges, and buttresses. Rose Tower is the first tower south of of the complex broken cliffs of Magic Mountain. The main routes, most notably the very popular Olive Oil, are on the southeastern face of the tower. They are approached by hiking up the narrow canyon immediately to the tower's left.
The easiest approach is to hike the Knoll Trail toward Juniper Canyon. After you pass beneath the Rose Tower, follow a climbers' trail uphill to the west and enter the narrow canyon to the south of the Rose Tower. Once in the canyon, scramble over boulders along the right wall until reaching the routes.
