Description

This is a small tower sitting high in the saddle in between Kindergarten (aka Grey or Cathedral) Rock and Keyhole Rock. The rock is a little loose, and the routes are all runout, but you will almost certainly have the tower to yourself.

This formation is NOT affected by the 2018 closures to Keyhole Rock and part of the West Face of Kindergarten Rock.

Getting There

Hike past Montezuma Tower from the main parking lot and negotiate the maze of climbers trails to the base of the tower. Most of the routes start in between Easter Rock and Keyhole Rock.

White Chalk is not allowed!

The Park staff want to remind the climbing community that white chalk (calcium carbonate) is prohibited in the park due to visual impact. While any chalk use is discourage, chalk substitute that does not discolor the rock may be used. Eco balls are sold at the Visitor Center.

When placing closure signange/notifications, our park rangers noted chalk stains on several routes in the closure area (Anaconda and Grapefruit Dance), as well as the Blowouts bouldering area (which were cleaned last year, meaning all the chalk here is new). We are again hoping that the community can come together and address this issue before it requires any action on our part. Access may come into play! We'd also like to thank the PPCA for their efforts to remove chalk stains in these areas last year and hope that local climbers might consider helping them remove chalk stains from the rock this season- check their website for more info on upcoming events- http://www.pikespeakclimbersalliance.org/#!stewardship-opportunities/ifre4.
