Description 

This is the hammer -shaped formation just below the Kingfisher. We found it a bit tricky to get to the base. It's a cool looking spire and a cool summit.

Getting There 

Hike down the trail until you see the thing. I believe there is a way to just hike to the thing , but we had to rope up and do a short 5.10 section of climbing up a crack in a cliffband which blocked us from getting to the base.

We couldn't find an easy way to get to this tower, and it took a long time to get to the base, because we had to rope up, lead a 5.10 crack section, etc...and we still hadn't even reached the BASE of the climb! The first part of the climb is , yeah,...5.7.....with protection being pitons hammered into mud. Then you get to this bolt ladder section of pitons ...[more]   Browse More Classics in UT
