The Reclining Tower is a fine formation to spend a day at, containing moderate to challenging climbs. The formation sees little traffic, so you'll likely have the place to yourself.

Getting There 

The Reclining Tower is about 200 feet north of the USGS marker near the top of the Prospect Point Rampart, where the park service road hits the West Bluff Trail. A climber's trail descends a gully just south of the Reclining Tower formation.
