DescriptionMoosedog Tower is one of the high points in Indian Cove, and offers great views of the area, as well as some of the longer climbs in Indian Cove. The highlights are the climbs near the Direct South Face (5.9) (which turns a great roof!), including Wandering Winnebago (5.8+) and Third Time's a Charm (5.10b). Tranquility (5.6) is the easiest way up to the summit, but for the most part it's an awkward, unpleasant climb.
Descend by heading towards the back of the tower, where there is a two-bolt rap anchor. After a short, fun, free-hanging rappel, you can descend the southwest gully to your left or scramble to your right towards the group camp area.
Getting ThereMoosedog is the last formation on your right as you head out towards the western end of the family campsite area. You have to wander through a campsite or two to get to the base of the south buttress, where Tranquility and Direct South Face begin. A number of other routes ascend the steeper southwest face in the gully to the left of the formation (which doubles as the descent gully).
