Unfortunately, the owners of the Sun Tower cliffs, Dennis and Wanda Brock, have decided to close their land to climbing. There are 'No Trespassing' signs near the cliffs. We don't know how permanent this change will be. We continue to welcome anyone to access the trailhead and hike on our trails on our land. We're sorry this has occurred.
Sincerely, Bob and Lisa Eakle
The Sun Tower Formations are on private land, so please respect the area around them. To reach the Towers, park in a pull out about a quarter mile east of mile marker 135 adjacent to a drive way. There is a trail just to the (right?) side of the driveway that leads up to the crags. (The sign next to the trail asks climbers to remain on the trail to the base of the crags.) Follow the trail behind the house and up to the Lower Tower where you'll be just below the bolts on Sunup. To reach the Upper Tower, follow the carined trail through a talus slope to the notch between the two towers. Approach time is 10-15 minutes to the Lower Tower and 20 minutes to the Upper Tower.
