The Towers area refers to section of routes located on the far left end of the Munchkin Wall. This is the first bit of climbworthy rock you encountery coming down the rocky switchbacks at the end of the approach trail. You'll see a big dark alcove/cleft in the rock where the routes are located to the left and right. Faces northerly and in the shade in the morning. For all intents and purposes, this is part of the Munchkin Wall and you can easily mix and match routes from this area and Munchkin throughout a day of climbing.

Couple harder moves low and through the middle, then easy above. I kept the rating 5.10a to go with the consensus, but this is the easiest 10 I've done. I think "Clip Clip Here..." is harder, so I'd probably go 5.9 on this one. Fun either way....[more] Browse More Classics in AZ
