Description 

This is the large face that is below the majority of the Durrance Approach. Numerous trad lines and even a few short sport routes can be found.


Getting There 

Take the asphalt trail out of the parking lot. Stay right at the Y and pass the West Face boulder field. A few feet further brings you to a large interpretive sign on the left. The buttress directly in front of you is your destination.

Climb through the inital layback flake and face moves to the first of three roofs. The first 11a roof prepares you for the very awkward 11c second roof. Obvious moves to the right lead to the final 9+ roof. This route is quite unique to the Tower....[more]   Browse More Classics in WY
