This is probably the coolest looking tower in Tusher Canyon and is roughly 270 feet tall. The climbs are trad mixed with aid. I have not climbed it yet, but am sure the view from the top is worth the time getting there. The guide book mentions bolts and fixed pitons on some of the routes, but don't count on them. This is soft rock, and their condition could be poor. There will be no waiting line for the climbs on this tower; there will most likely be no-one else anywhere. A big part of the appeal here is knowing you're climbing something few others have.
The directions for Tusher Canyon will bring you right to it. The tricky part is getting to the canyon; from there, you can't miss it. Just keep driving the 4x4 roads, hopefully by jeep, southwest until you see it ahead on the right with Aeolian Tower just south of it. Existing jeep roads work their way near enough for an easy approach. There is no need to play redneck by tearing up the desert getting there.

This route starts up the West face directly under the window (the obvious hole in the rock). Climb up some good cracks (5.8) with a couple tricky moves and lots of jamming to the window. From here, jam out the overhang on good hands that quickly turn to tight bastard hands in the dihedral (5.10+). Follow this until you get to the bolt ladder protecting the chimney. You now must climb the weirdest thing in the world (5.10+ squeeze) - you will be horribly confused, but it's some of the best cl...[more] Browse More Classics in UT
