A fun tower with a great approach. The Colorado River must be crossed to reach this tower. Barney Rumble Tower is 140 feet high.
Park in a pullout on the River Road near mile marker 4. The tower will be visible accross the river up on a shelf. Float across the river and traverse left until weaknesses through the cliff bands provide a way up to the base of the tower. Some routefinding is involved.
Weather station 4.2 miles from here

It's called "Rumble" because Jeff Widen was experiencing gastrointestinal distress during the first ascent.
