nice little tower with great views and fun climbing. approach may sound complicated but is not. quick and easy. there's potential for a couple more routes. Double Bow Chimney is a few minutes walk down river.
from the waterfall in the main Gold Bar wash, hike up wash to the huge boulders on your left. diagonal left with the boulder to a cheat stack and tunnel thru the hole to the ledge. hike up wash 20 yards to a point under a large roof with a small tree under it. cut back left and up under the roof on an improbable 3rd class ramp. gain the rim and head straight up to the tower.
