Description 

The Rainy Wednesday Tower formation is located between the Leaning Tower Gully and Bill's Buttress. The formation contains long climbs on good rock. Popular climbs here include Double Overhang, Orgasm, and Foreplay. You should arrive early to claim your climb when coming to this part of the East Rampart.


Getting There 

To get to the Rainy Wednesday formation hike up the CCC trail and turn right at Pedestal Buttress and head east around D'Arcy's Buttress. Once on top of the cliff walk west until you reach the Tombstone Wall/Leaning Tower area. Descend the Leaning Tower Gully and turn left (east) at the bottom of the gully. Here you will find the "Bedroom Amphitheater" (Orgasm, Foreplay, etc). A little further and you will reach Rainy Wednesday Tower itself.
