BETA PHOTO: Leaning Tower's Northeast and Northwest faces.
Leaning Tower is a large monolith found above Rainy Wednesday Tower and just southeast of The Tombstone on the CCC trail. There is no easy access to the top so TR's must be set by somebody who leads or solos the tower.
Take a right at Pedestal Buttress on the CCC Trail and follow it around Darcy's Buttress, continue along trail for about a half-mile. It's large and in charge. Can't miss it.

I know. I think this deserves a spot on the East Rampart page because, aside from quality bouldering, it also contains some quality routes that one might not neccesarily think could be classified as bouldering.

Jay can comment too, but I think it's reasonable to list this area under both the bouldering section and the route (non-bouldering) section, in case anyone misses it. Better duplicate information than missing information IMO. Post up the routes, Andy (or anyone else), or just leave a link to the other posting (like you did Paul).

me and a buddy just lead leaning tower on Sunday. it was a good area to learn to place protection and get the basics down for leading. plus there is a bolt on top that is in pretty good condition. so that was a nice find that wasn't in the guidebook. i would recommend leaning tower for anyone starting on leading there are good places to place protection, at least there was on the west and south side of the tower. a basic set of nuts should get you to the top.
