Description 

These are a group of three/four DIRTY towers that are bisected by I-70 on the western edge of the swell. They are within rock toss distance from the interstate.

These formations are nothing to write home about, but due to their close proximity to the interstate, if you are adventure minded, they give the dirt climber something to do.


Getting There 

Traveling on I-70, go to Ranch exit 108. The towers are a few hundred meters east of the exit on both sides of the interstate. There are 2 1/2 on the south side and 1 on the north side.

This is a neat formation. It is a little bit dirty, but the rock is decent. Start from the north side. Follow a crack system to the first chimney/offwidth (this is the R section unless you have really big cams.) Move left to the next chimney and either free climb past bolts, or aid C0 through this chimney. Traverse right to a really nice finger/small hands crack that leads to the top. Aid this crack at C1 or go for the free ascent.Descent: I believe a 60 meter rope would work, but trail...[more]   Browse More Classics in UT
