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.
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.
