Peek-a-boo - take care on the approach.

Description 

The Grey Towers are located above and right of the obvious Pink Band (Mayfield Canyon Towers) in the center of the Wheeler Crest. These towers are characterized by rounded and smooth blank faces occasionally broken by discontinuous crack systems. Steep slabs of high-quality granite soar to heights of over a thousand feet. From US 395 they don't look like much when surrounded by the vastness of the entirety of the Wheeler Crest, but as you approach them the size and scale of these beautiful pinnacles becomes apparent.


Getting There 

Mayfield Canyon approach. Behind the Pink Band. Allow 1.5 - 3 hours, around 3,000 feet of elevation gain. No trail.

This route follows the most obvious line on Cobblers Tower. No information was known about the route beforehand, though a rusty bolt here and there were found along the way, and during our effort a handful more were placed. A fit and able party could make a huge day of it, but it's recommended to set up camp near the base. P1: Climb a low-angle ramp to access the obvious rounded right-facing flake, pass a bulge and belay on top of the feature (5.7). P2: Climb past two bolts on the slab.
