Description 

A worthy crag with a variety of routes located in the North Fork of Circle Creek. The approach of roughly 45 minutes probably keeps many back along the main road, or nearby crags. This rock is definitely worth a little extra effort and will also give parties a look at tons of underutilized rock, waiting for some climbers. Presently, the west face has the best developed routes but there is clearly room for more exploration.

Getting There 

Park at the Circle Creek Overlook and walk along the road to the junction of Center Creek and the North Fork of Circle Creek. At this time the signage in this part of the City is quite good and should be helpful to parties seeking this crag.
Hike up the North Fork trail, then take a right onto the Banana Crag trail. Higher, in about ten minutes, parties enter an set of aspens. The trail is intermittent through this area, but the going is not difficult. Leave the trail and head uphill to the right, crest a small rise and the multi-summited Nameless Tower is in front of you. There is a square-shaped white intrusion of lighter rock in the center of the west face that can help identify this formation. It might take a short hour to do this approach. In the spring it is a riot of flowers and is a pleasant warm-up.

Naked Ape 5.8 5b 16 VI- 15 HVS 4c  ID : City of Rocks : Nameless Tower
A nice two pitch route in the center of the west face. The last bit of the second pitch seems to be the crux, though getting started is an odd bit of climbing. Excellent City rock, good stances, enjoyable movement make this a quality line....[more]   Browse More Classics in ID
