Lady in the Bathtub.

Description 

It's a desert tower! Like all the others, it's a long drive to get to, a tedious hike, the rock is mediocre. But the summit is spectacular; all the more so because it's the highest thing for miles around.


Getting There 

Drive the loop road for 11 miles, all the way past the Puttermans' formations until the closest approach. There is a pull-in, marked by gray-blue limestone rocks. Hike from here is 40 minutes (with a large pack). Work up and left, skirt around to the west side of the dirt ridge, traverse the side of the ridge northward and eventually locate an easy scramble past the major drop-off that circles the formation. One more drop-off is negotiated by a 10-foot chimney/ramp on the southeast corner. You will emerge under the south arete. From here a ledge traverses the west face to access the original route.

There are two routes on this tower. The original Forrest-Hurley route, Angels' Fear, and Capetown Caper. Once we reached the tower and saw the splitter cracks taken by Capetown Caper, we immediately ditched our plan to climb the easier, Forrest route. Ours was likely the second ascent of Capetown Caper. By local, Valley of the Gods standards, this is an excellent, direct route with great rock. Pitch 1: The "5.8" pitch starts just left of the south prow.

Lady in the Bathtub, viewed from the parking area. Approach by hiking up and left up onto the dirt ridge on the left side of the photo. Skirt around this just under the obvious cliff-band then work north to the formation until at a boulder-strewn break in the cliff.
