This is the super skinny tower that is farthest north (up canyon) on the hillside. This is a very skinny tower and so far no one has actually stood directly on top. Not sure if it even possible . . . who's going to sack up and go for it?


Farthest north tower and skinniest tower in the cirque.


There is no anchor on this route and you have to just go up and over/around the top to the saddle on the other side. There is a bolt to protect you as you down climb on the far side.

Horrible approach. Me and my buddy almost got bit by rattlesnakes. Death scree and bees everywhere. This route was not worth it. The rock was super sharp and there was no chains. Seemed really dangerous to me. Like the whole thing was gonna break off

You joined a few days ago to give 3 bombs to 3 routes put up by the Choss Lords of the Wasatch? In a remote area which they openly described as a complete heap? With a route description clearly stating that there are no chains and a hairy walk-off? With a route name suggesting is might involve "rock" even crappier than mudstone?

Congrats on sandbagging yourself super hard and not dying. Way to get after it though, these things might not see another ascent for a decade.

I recommend The Rattle Horn for your next outing.
