If you are at the Grand Canyon and don't mind some Hiking you will love this. Hike down the Kibab Trail until you are even with the tower and head overland. The Tower is Supai sandstone so it's pretty soft. But for GC this is a an awesome climb. Good pro with cams to 3', we had 2 ropes for the rap but I think a 70 would work.
