BETA PHOTO: The two towers. There is a rope on the right tower...

Closes at dusk, and most parking areas are self-paid MORE INFO >>>


Two old towers used back in the day when the lower quarry was still operational. I was on my way to the quarry when i noticed a few holds on the overhanging wall. On closer inspection I found a few bolts and two anchors attached to the top of the tower. Plus a rope hanging from the nearby shorter tower. Got me wondering on who did this? Looks really sick and worth a try!

Anybody who has information on this please tell. :)

Getting There 

Walk uphill toward the quarry. The two towers will be on your left.

Did you notice whether that's old or new hardware on the towers?

It looked like new bolts. Plus the holds looked moderately used. I've checked this tower out before and a month ago I remember not seeing any bolts.
