The Son Tower Rock Climbing
Past the Oven toward the right side of the Pit is the Sun Tower, a semi-detached formation with a good concentration of moderate routes. All of the climbs here are 5.10 or under, making this one of the best hangouts for moderate climbers at the Pit. The rock is fairly solid, but broken up by many ledges, tainting the quality of the routes somewhat. Despite its name, the Sun Tower is also a good place to catch some shade on a hot day.
Walk along the main trail past the Oven until you reach an obvious tower with bolted routes. R.E.M.
is the first route on the left.

I believe the name of this formation is "Son Tower". Seems like I heard it was named for someone's offspring, not the solar version. Maybe someone who was around back then can tell us for sure?
