The Hindu is the tall skinny spire on the right side of Onion Creek Road. It is the first tower reached after many creek crossings. The tower is on surpsingly good Cutler sandstone, and is an excellent introduction to Cutler climbing. Both routes on the tower have gone free at very high standards, though the Maverick is still a superb moderate clean aid climb.
Park at a BLM campsite just underneath the tower. Scramble up mud and rock benches to the land bridge, which is followed to the base of the tower. All routes on the Hindu are approached from this land bridge. The approach is only about 20 minutes from the car.
