The Kingfisher is the closest of the big towers to the parking lot, and the easiest to climb. The Colorado NE Ridge is the easiest of the big Fisher Towers aid routes, but it is still not a giveaway. The Kingfisher also sports a selection of very difficult and dangerous aid routes, two of which were put up solo by Jim Beyer. Feel free to shudder as you walk underneath the Death of American Democracy on the way to the Colorado NE Ridge.
Walk along the Titan Trail past Ancient Art, and look for a climbers trail heading up the gully between Ancient Art and Cottontail Tower. Head up past Stolen Chimney, and scramble up some mud cliffs to the base of the Kingfisher. There are many climbers trails through here, and the easiest way is tough to find.
