Tower 143 offers one of the prouder summits to be had in this area. Named after the local Playboy channel, it sits on top of the Sunshine Wall nestled among a group of tower-like formations. The entrada sandstone here is pretty soft in places so if you prefer wingate, this tower is probably not for you.
