Description 

One of the most popular cliffs in the upper gorge. It is tall, shady and has excellent rock quality. Actually it is so popular because of one climb...Gorgeous. However, most of the climbs are high quality and worth doing. When you park your car, look straight off the edge of the parking area and you will be facing the Gorgeous Towers.


Getting There 

From the bottom of the upper approach, follow the main trail south down the gorge, past the trestle, around the corner, over a log and a bridge, through the wet rocky nettle patch, through the talus straight to the tower.
