Psycho Tower.

Description 

This is a striking tower overlooking the Dolores River. The rock is good sandstone.


Getting There 

Park under the tower about 12.5 miles from the paved road. This is about 1/2 mile before the boat launch. Look for a boulder with an obvious hand crack about 50' in from the road.

The trail is about 50' left of this boulder - it is well cairned. The approach takes about 1/2 hour.

Utah has Castleton, Arizona has the Mace, Oregon has Monkey Face, and Colorado has Psycho Tower. This is a fine route on a fine tower - a must do for those who appreciate a good summit.Although generously bolted, this isn't a sport climb. Trad gear and skills are needed!Pitch 1: Start from a bolted anchor at the saddle on the north side. Follow two bolts up and step right (big air!!) into a crack / corner. Climb this to a ledge, up a step to another ledge (fixed nut), past the rap anchor o...[more]   Browse More Classics in CO
