Obvious looming tower of tan rock sitting atop the right side of the main wall. Contains about 8 single pitch sport climbs. The best being inside a large corner feature that is the centerpiece of this crag. The large corner faces East and gets shade in the afternoon making this a good spot on warmer days.
Follow directions to the "Main Wall". As you descend the final 450 vertical feet to the base of the "Main Wall" you will see the Tan Man Tower on your right about 1/2 way down the hill.
