Description 

The Tower is the large formation directly west, across the saddle from the Hand. It hosts at least one old route.


Getting There 

Same approach as for the Hand. When you get to the saddle, follow a faint trail around the left side of the Tower and up to a alcove with a tree at the base.

This is an "old-school" serious route. The first pitch climbs 25-30 feet of overhanging, unprotected rock to the first gear placement, and ends in a saddle about 40 feet higher at an old 2-bolt belay. The second pitch climbs an arete similar to that on the Razors' Edge for about 60 feet to a large block. From here, one can either move right into a loose gully and to the top, 40 feet 5.6, or swing left out onto a headwall and climb poorly protected 5.8 face to the top.
