BETA PHOTO: Fox Tower routes
|Some areas require a guide.|
Fox Tower is a 200 foot buttress that sits adjacent to the south side of the massive Indecent Exposure Buttress. There are a few routes here, with the most striking line being the swiss cheese huecos that form the Fox Trot (9+) route.
After hiking down the main road past the Indecent Exposure Buttress, there's a bathroom. Just past that, find a climbers trail leading pretty much right to the base of the formation.
