Description Suggest change

The Great Tower is a excellent spot for many reasons. For one, it's close to Cleos Amphitheater. For two, it has lots of easy to moderate climbs, and for three it's in sun most of the day.

Getting There Suggest change

Take the Tumbled Rocks trail to the 150 foot wide boulder field, ascend a faint trail on the south side of boulder field. Great Tower is the second exposed outcropping. Great Tower is 100 west of (above) Sun-top Tower.
