SW Exposure. Varied Features with flaring crack, a short dihedral, dike and a little face up top. New routes and area that really hasn't gotten climbed enough yet for reliable ratings (or really clean rock).
Park at roadside display east of Jumbo Rocks cg. (see photo), Top Secret Tower is accessed by following a trail behind the display, through the notch (bushes and trees) then over the next knoll. It's just behind the cap rock shown in the approach photo directly above the display.

I didn't climb this route but thought I'd go ahead and add it to get the word out so it gets climbed then, commented on.
