The Tower of Babel is the higher of the two massive sandstone conglomerate domes west of The Canyon. When viewed from the east it appears low angle and slabby, but from the west presents a formable steep knobby 180 ft. wall, with the lower portion forming an imposing twenty-five foot overhang with surprisingly few cobbles, pockets, or climbable features. This wall is a treasure chest of huecos and knobs of all sizes. Quite the secluded and uncrowded playground.
The Tower of Babel is a two minute walk over the ridge and down the hill, to the west, from the base of The Chicken (Hyperion Slab).
