Description [Edit]

The Otis Flower Tower is one of the taller and more continuous formations on the south side of Mt Otis. The rock can best be described as untraveled and adventurous. The climbing tends to be ledgy with chossier lower angle climbing down low and steeper, more sustained, cleaner climbing on the top half. Very definite alpine adventure feel. MUCH more chill and less crowded than the rest of the Park.

Access Issues: it's in a National Park. All normal BS applies.

Getting There [Edit]

Leave the Glacier Gorge/Loch Vale trailhead. At the split, head towards Loch Vale. After crossing Andrews Creek turn right (sign), and follow the trail. The various formations on Otis should be obvious as you break the trees. The Otis Flower Tower is the 2nd formation left of the Solar Wall or the 3rd formation left of Zowie (the cool, slender, Petite Grepon looking thing). There are a variety of bivy sites hidden in the gorge. Look around.
