Description 

pitch 1 is a 5.10 corner to a ledge with bolts.

pitch 2 is a 5.10 chimney to a ledge with chains.

pitch 3 is a long aid pitch with a mix of bolts and beaks and nuts.

a fourth pitch can be added by using an anchor at the end of the aid pitch (added on the fa to remove some blocks.

Location 

Enter red canyon as far as vehicles are permitted. The canyon splits into two main canyons, one going east (right) and one going north (left). Take the left canyon, the tower should be visible up and right. Hike the canyon through some narrows, you will not be able to see the tower or scramble out of the narrows until you have passed it. At this point scramble out of the narrows and up to the tower.

Protection
